East Bengal rope in Ferre as assistant coach

City football giants East Bengal on Thursday appointed Spaniard Josep Ferre as the assistant coach to Alejandro Menendez ahead of the 2019-20 season.

Ferre last managed Bayamon FC in Liga Puerto and is also known as Coco.

The 35-year-old was handed a two-year contract. A UEFA "A" license holder, Ferre has a degree in sports science and is also an expert video analyst.

The I-League runners-up had earlier extended the contract of their Spaniard head coach Menendez for two years.

The red-and-golds have already signed Pintu Mahata from arch-rivals Mohun Bagan besides also roping in Neroca's Naorem Singh and Bengaluru FC's Boithang Haokip.
