FOOTBALL- Spaniard Carles Cuadrat has been named the new coach of Bengaluru FC in a one-year deal, the club announced on Thursday.

Cuadrat replaces Albert Roca who left Bengaluru earlier in May. The 49 year old was an assistant coach at the club since last two seasons.

“We are thrilled at announcing Carles as our new head coach. Alongside Albert, he played a massive part in changing the way we played football. Given the long association the two have shared, it’s reassuring to know that our philosophy remains intact. Carles has been a popular figure in the dressing room and with the fans and we couldn’t have asked for a better choice as we make an important transition,” said club CEO, Parth Jindal.

Cuadrat also said he was happy to be back at the club and thanked the management for keeping their faith in him.
