Indian Super League side from West Bengal Athletico de Kolkata have begun their preparation. They have announced two massive signings.
Former Bengaluru FC Manager Ashly Westwood has been signed as technical director of the club while former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham Signed as their Head Coach.
Ashly Westwood is well known in India for his amazing work at Bengaluru FC where he won 2 league titles. The Englishmen after the sucessfull stint in India had moved to Malaysian Super League with Penang. The Stint in Malaysia was not as fruitful as it was in India and he had to resign in midseason for the poor performance. He saw Indian players closely so it will come handy to pick players during the draft.
Westwood will be working with Former Manchester Untied striker Teddy Sheringham who has been signed as the head coach of the team. The Striker has vast experience of playing in the English Premier League for a major period of his career but when it comes to managing it will be interesting. He has only managed Stevenage back in 2010 which did not last for long. He will be hoping that Westwood will help him manage the club.
Athletico de Kolkata have done some shrewd business signings Westwood but it will remain to be seen how Toddy Sheringham performs as a coach.
