Indian Super League: 4 Managers most likely to take over at Kerala Blasters FC
Who can lead Kerala Blasters to glory?
The 2015 Indian Super League season saw Chennaiyin FC crowned as the new champions. It was, however, a season to forget for the Kerala Blasters fans, who finished bottom of the table with a mere 13 points from 14 games. It was a huge shock for the South Indian outfit, who were runners-up in the ISL in the inaugural year.
After just one win from the opening six games, head coach Peter Taylor was replaced by Irishman Terry Phelan, who couldn't do much to stop the ship from sinking. The club enters the next season hoping for a much-needed change in fortunes, and along with that springs up the debate as to who shall be the one chosen to lead the team out for battle.
#1 Gary Neville
The ex-Manchester United captain was sacked by Valencia after picking up 11 loses in 28 games. He was more recently linked with Delhi Dynamos, with noted footballing agents and British news houses adding credibility to the rumors.
Currently serving as England's assistant manager, Neville will be hoping to help the country deliver a good performance in France during the upcoming Euros. The former Premier League winner previously left Sky Sports before joining Valencia and made was handsomely paid during his stint as a pundit and analyst. This does suggest that landing the 8 time Premier League winner will not be financially easy.
However, a marquee manager such as him will make a huge impact on the audiences that ISL would attract for the next season. His name is well known among Indians, considering what he has achieved with Manchester United and the number of appearances he makes on television and social media.
