Top 5 ISL and I-League coaches who are expected to leave next season
#4 Cesar Ferrando (Jamshedpur FC)
Cesar Ferrando was roped in by Jamshedpur FC for his debut in the ISL this term after the departure of former manager Steve Coppell at the end of last season. Despite making headlines through the signing of Tim Cahill, the Spaniard failed to secure a place in the playoff stages of the competition.
The 'Men of Steel' finished just outside the top four, after falling two points behind North East United, as their hopes of progressing to the semi-finals evaporated quickly on the back of a few inconsistent displays.
Although his achievement is commendable for a first-timer in the ISL, the club would have expected to land a place in the playoff stages considering the backing Ferrando received to rope in a high-profile signing like Cahill to go with several other key foreigners.
However, the team started their season with a five-game winless run and struggled for consistency, while also being held to a massive nine draws (joint-highest in the league) from their 18 games during their league campaign.
Despite the shortcomings from the season, there has yet to be any official word on Ferrando's future at the club, but he could be in line to be replaced by a potential successor before the upcoming season.
