Indian Super League side SC East Bengal parted ways with Spanish tactician Manolo Diaz as The Bridge can exclusively confirm.

The Red and Gold Brigade had a very poor start to the current season and are yet to win a single game. With 4 draws and 4 losses in their last 8 games, SC East Bengal are currently placed at the bottom of the table. Manolo seemed unable to make appropriate changes in his game plans. As a result, the Kolkata giants suffered heavily in all departments and were thrashed on many occasions.

Things worsened further with the gaffer's statements that portrayed his lack of confidence and hope on the team.

With such a poor start to the campaign pressure piled on the management. Sources close to the development confirmed that the SCEB think tank has finally decided to change things and they have parted ways with their current head coach.

After a below-par finish in their debut Indian Super League campaign under Robbie Fowler. SC East Bengal decided to rope in Manolo Diaz to turn around their fortunes. The former Real Madrid Castilla manager was thought to be a great candidate. His arrival at the club was seen as a positive move. But unfortunately, something else was on the cards for the Torch Bearers.
