When is Mario Rivera going to arrive?
Last Updated 6:01 PM 30th January 2020 .
Quess East Bengal FC had announced the replacement for former coach Alejandro Menendez, who stepped down after a series of poor performances citing personal reasons, on 23rd January as former assistant coach Mario Rivera is all set to take over the charges of the team.
The team management has been trying to send in all the necessary documents required for the Spanish to acquire his visa and fly in at the earliest.
As per our reports, Mario might get his visa by today and if things go as per the plans, he will set foot on Kolkata on Friday night or at most on Saturday morning.
The team management is also looking to make sure Mario Rivera gets to sit on the reserve bench against Indian Arrows, if he can fly in before Saturday morning. All the necessary registrations have been done by the team management beforehand ensuring no objection for Mario to be present in the dugout at Kalyani.
