After a flurry of disappointing results by East Bengal, the Head-Coach Trevor Morgan has tendered his resignation today only to make space for the ex-Dempo veteran coach Armando Colaco to be the interim coach for the Kolkata based outfits. 


The club faced a disastrous time in the recent past losing four consecutive matches, one of them being the biggest of all — The Kolkata Derby against arch-rivals Mohun Bagan on 9th April.


The run of defeats began in the month of March when East Bengal fell prey to Churchill Brothers 1-2, before getting embarrassed to the entrants Chennai City 2-1. Now when the team still had a measure of title hopes, the Red and the Gold lost out to DSK Shivajians. This defeat not only crushed the title hopes for the Kolkata outfits, but indicated Englishman’s failure.


''I have got the resignation letter from Trevor (Morgan). I don't know about the future course of action. You should talk to the club secretary (Kalyan Majumder) to know about it," Santosh Bhattacharya, the football secretary who played the pivotal role in ensuring Morgan comes back for a second innings in Kolkata, told Goal this evening.


While Colaco will be helpless to guide East Bengal to the title win, his new banner will look to strengthen its position in the top three as Bengaluru are only a couple of points away. East Bengal are currently sitting at the third position with 27 points in the kitty.
