Quess East Bengal FC suffered their third consecutive defeat on Sunday in the Hero I-League campaign with a 2-1 loss to their arch-rivals Mohun Bagan. The team was already under huge pressure and coach Alejandro Menendez has sparked new controversy with his statement after the defeat.
Alejandro Menendez on the post match press conference said, “I’m grateful for the fans’ support. I got the club to their best table position in the last 14 years last season. I think we played really good football all throughout the season. So this is my message to the fans.”
This statement didn’t go well with the fans as the team is just 2 points above relegation zone with just 8 points from 7 matches, 9 points behind league leaders Mohun Bagan.
Coach Alejandro Menendez’s magic with the fans is fading slowly as there has been questions raised on team selection and also the poor performance on the pitch.
The next game against Chennai City FC away on 25th will be very crucial for the survival of the Spanish coach, as fans and management both aren’t happy with the performance of the team so far.
