I-League: Khalid Jamil steps down as Mumbai FC coach

The Mumbai based outfit will have a new head coach for the second time in their I-League history

I-League outfit Mumbai FC and head coach Khalid Jamil have parted ways by mutual consent on Wednesday.

A club statement released on the website has confirmed that the former India international is to leave with immediate effect.

Deputy Vice President Atul Badgamia said, "I would like to thank Khalid Jamil for his excellent work, first as a player, then as a youth team coach and finally as the first team head coach. He leaves us with a legacy of having given several young players the confidence to show their ability on the highest stage. Khalid will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Mumbai FC. Everyone at the club wishes him all the best in the future."

Jamil was appointed as the coach in 2009, just two years after the club was founded in 2007, that makes him the longest running manager in the I-League.

A decision on their next manager is set to be announced soon.
