Carles Cuadrat, who was the assistant coach of the Blues last season, will lead the team for the upcoming chapter.

On Thursday, Indian Super League (ISL) outfit Bengaluru FC announced the appointment of Carles Cuadrat as the head coach for the upcoming season. The Spaniard had parted ways with the club in December last year owing to health concerns.

Cuadrat will replace Albert Roca at the club, who bid goodbye to the 2018 Super Cup champions at the end of the 2017-18 season.  Cuadrat had joined Bengaluru FC along with Roca in 2016 and played a crucial part in the club's journey in two AFC Cups, Federation Cup, I-League and ISL competitions.

Returning to Bengaluru, Cuadrat commented, ‘’I am very happy to come back to the club, to the fantastic people who work for it and to the fans who I have always had a special place for, in my heart. I am also grateful to the management for reposing such faith in me. What Albert achieved at the club is special and it won’t be easy to replicate. But I will be giving this opportunity everything I have, and I believe with the right amount of hard work and passion, we can keep achieving success at BFC.’’

Ahead of the fifth edition of ISL, a new set of rules that allows a club's assistant coach to be promoted to the position of the head coach even if the coach is not an active AFC Pro License holder, have been introduced. The full list of rules and requirements can be read here.
