Mumbai FC Appoint Oscar Bruzon As Head Coach
Strugglers Mumbai FC have appointed former Spanish professional footballer Oscar Bruzon as their head coach, following the sacking of Santosh Kashyap. The Indian coach, who was relieved of his duties recently, had a highly tumultuous time in charge which saw his team fail to register a win in 12 successive games this I League season. He was also labelled as a “snake” by the fans, whom he mocked for criticising his squad’s poor run of form.
This is not Bruzon’s first foray into Indian football, having already been a part of Nicolas Anelka’s coaching staff for the Indian Super League outfit Mumbai City FC. However, differences with the former Chelsea man saw him pack his bags and join Spanish club RCD Mallorca last year. He was a part of Fernando Vasquez’s team, but only one win in six Liga Segunda games saw him given the boot at the turn of last year. Since then, he has not taken up any more coaching offers until now.
The Mumbai outfit have placed their faith in someone who is not well-versed with the rigours of the league, and one can only hope that it works out in their favour with them miraculously beating the drop this year.
