SC East Bengal is proud to welcome Manuel ‘Manolo’ Diaz as our new head coach for the Hero Indian Super League 2021-22 season.
With over 20 years of coaching experience, including a significant period of time in the Real Madrid C.F. setup, Manolo brings with him a wealth of experience and a winning mentality.
The 53-year-old has an overall win rate of 41.77 percent over 328 matches coached in his two-decade career, and a 46.66 win rate in his latest stint at Real Madrid Castilla (2018-19).
“In Madrid, we say 'Winning is in our DNA'. We love the pressure and expectation that comes with coaching a big club,” Manolo said.
“Time is short and there is a long and difficult road ahead, but we will do our best to deliver good performances for all SC East Bengal fans.”
