Veteran coach and former India striker Subhash Bhowmick was on Monday appointed Technical Director of city football giants East Bengal while Khalid Jamil remained head coach of the side slated to play the Super Cup next month.
East Bengal finished fourth in the league this term, squandering several chances to grab pole position and end their 14-year wait for the league crown.
"I got a call just now from East Bengal club management. I was told to be the technical director. It's an honour to be back. I will meet them tomorrow and then take it forward and plan for the Super Cup," Bhowmick told IANS over phone.
East Bengal also won the LG ASEAN Club Cup in 2003 under his tutelage.
