ISL 2020-21: Kerala Blasters appoint Kibu Vicuna as head coach


Indian Super League club Kerala Blasters appoints Spaniard Kibu Vicuna as the new head coach of the side. The I-League-winning coach replaced Dutchman Eelco Schattorie, as they bid farewell to him on Wednesday morning.

Kerala Blasters took to Twitter to announce the arrival of the Spaniard.

Vicuna had led Mohun Bagan to the title in the 2019-20 season, with four games to spare.

Vicuna is expected to bring his own staff, including Polish assistant coach Tomasz Tchorz and a Lithuanian physical trainer.

The development comes after the Blasters appointed Karolis Skynkis as sporting director. It is the Lithuanian, who convinced Vicuna to take up the job.

After the merger of Mohun Bagan and ATK, Vicuna was left without a club. The 48-year-old has been the assistant coach at several Polish clubs and had impressed everybody with his style of play with Bagan.

Kerala Blasters finished seventh in the ISL table in the last season. Their campaign was severely affected by multiple injuries and some insipid performances, especially from the back line, including the goalkeepers.

Vicuna will be the ninth coach for the Blasters, who seem to be on their way to continue with their infamous ‘tradition’ of chopping and changing the coach and support staff every season.
