Mumbai City FC part ways with Bruzon
Mumbai : Indian Super League side Mumbai City FC have parted ways with their assistant coach Oscar Bruzon with immediate effect due to “differences in football philosophy”.
The club issued a statement that the decision to part ways was a “mutual” one. The Spanish coach was absent during Mumbai’s 1-1 draw against Delhi Dynamos in New Delhi on November 6.
“The club has decided to part ways with assistant coach Oscar Bruzon with immediate effect. There have been differences in our football philosophy and both sides feel it’s best to part ways amicably,” Mumbai City FC CEO Indranil Das Blah said in the statement.
“The decision is a mutual one. We thank Oscar for all his help and support and wish him all the best for future endeavours,” he added.
This was the second instance of a coach making an exit from an ISL side. Peter Taylor was sacked as head coach of Kerala Blasters on October 28 after a string of losses for the Kochi-based ISL team.
On his part Bruzon said he was proud of having been part of Mumbai City FC.
“Honour means respecting my club, its players, the owners and the fans. I am proud of what I have done for the club in the little time I’ve spent here and I know that the club feels the same way. I would like to conclude by saying that it’s been an absolute honor and matter of pride being part of the Mumbai City FC family,” he said.
After the completion of eighth round matches, Mumbai lie in fourth position with 11 points to their kitty.
