Spaniard Óscar Bruzón Barreras new Sporting Clube de Goa coach
I-League side Sporting Clube de Goa have reacted to their poor start to the season after early exits from the Durand Cup and Federation Cup, they are now in lowly 11th spot with only 7 points from nine matches. Sporting Clube de Goa have surprisingly appointed Spaniard Óscar Bruzón Barreras as the new head coach in place of Ekendra Singh, who still is said to retain a place in the coaching staff as is Technical Director Alex Alvares.
Bruzón has been the Head of Football Development at Bangalore-based SPT Sports Management while also having coached at Delhi’s Hindustan FC and he has been in India for a while. The 35 year old coach has played professional football in the Spanish 2nd Division (Segunda División) for Celta de Vigo, Las Palmas CF and Pontevedra CF.
After ending his career he coached the youth teams of Celta de Vigo and Areosa CF in his native Spain, while also earning a UEFA ‘A’ Pro Coaching Licence degree before embarking on his Indian sojourn.
