After a series of disastrous performances, Hyderabad FC head coach Phil Brown has been sacked from work. The debutants of this year’s Indian Super League (ISL) have been able to manage only a single win from 12 games. Their most recent loss 1-3 to Chennaiyin FC on Friday, led to the franchise parting ways with Brown.
The defensive roadblock has been engulfing the team for a long time now, and they have conceded as many as 29 goals in 12 matches. They have zero clean sheets this season. Hyderabad FC is languishing at the bottom of the points table with just five points from 12 games.
Besides Brown’s coaching abilities coming under the scanner, injuries to key players throughout the season have been another reason for their debacle. The team as a whole, though, has underperformed consistently.
A report claims Phil to have admitted that the team is only going from bad to worse. "We have to stop making mistakes, doesn't matter who is making it, it is killing it. We have to pick ourselves up and go again, we seem to be doing that too often. I would not blame it on just the defence. We lost the game collectively. We have got to keep working hard. This season has gone from bad to worse," he said.
The 60-year-old was a right-back who made over 600 league appearances in his 18-year old career, but has never made it to the top flight.
