Following internal discussions during a board meeting on March 23, East Bengal announced that head coach Stephen Constantine would not be next season.
In a press release, the club also mentioned that they are finding Constantine’s successor. They promised to build a stronger team for the next campaign.
The English tactician arrived in Kolkata for the 2022-23 season. Despite showing a few promising signs, East Bengal struggled for large parts of the season, winning only six of their twenty games.
Ultimately, they finished 9th in the standings, much to the dismay of the Red and Gold Brigade. Constantine will remain in charge of the team for the Hero Super Cup tournament in April.
In addition to their decision to part ways with Constantine, East Bengal, it was revealed that they are considering writing a letter to Football Sports Development Limited (FSDL) regarding introducing a draft system in the Indian Super League.
