KERALA BLASTERS APPOINT NEW COACH



Terry Phelan, the former Irish International, has been appointed as the head coach of Kerala Blasters. Phelan who was the Technical Director of Kerala Blasters Grassroot Programme and will replace Peter Taylor who resigned after his side's four straight defeats.

The announcement of Terry Phelan may come as a surprise as it was expected that assistant coach Trevor Morgan would take over as Head Coach. Trevor Morgan also had Coaching experience in India, as he was the Head Coach of East Bengal FC during 2010-13, during which his team won three consecutive Calcutta Football League title and also made it to the semi-final of AFC Cup.

Trevor Morgan also managed to end the four match losing streak when his team drew their encounter against Chennaiyin FC with both side scoring one goal each.

Terry Phelan has played as a left-back for top tier English Clubs like SwanseaCity, Manchester City, Chelsea and Everton during the prime of his career. He also helmed the role of Player-Coach for New Zealand based club, Otago United, for four seasons.

The new coach will have to shoulder huge expectations from fans who have been patiently waiting for a turn around for the team, which has lost four of the last six games and have register only a single win in eight matches. He will also have to lift the players morale which is bound to be low after a 6 game win less streak.
