The Dutchman has been in and around the Indian football circuit for quite a long time, but it was in the ongoing Indian Super League that he got his due share of fame.

After a disappointing show by the NorthEast United FC in the last season, Eelco Schattorie was given the charge of the unit.

He delivered for the Highlanders, with the team still in a comfortable position to make it to the top four.

The primary reason that he is suitable for the job is simply that of the amount of time he has spent in the country.

Setting foot on Indian soil as a coach for the first time in 2012, he guided Prayag United to an IFA Shield title.

He was also at the helm of affairs during Prayag’s 2012-13 I-League campaign, but he couldn’t save the team from being relegated.

The former East Bengal coach will be a fair selection if he gets the national job. Known for his aggressive style of play, his arrival may change the attitude of the Indian players in the near future.
