But Jamshedpur needs a manager after former Premier League manager Owen Coyle left the team in March.

Coyle led them to their first-ever Indian title this season – and they hoped he would accept a new deal.

But Coyle said in a statement to fans at the club: “I have had two absolutely wonderful years with Jamshedpur.

“The people I’ve met and the relationships we’ve forged are some of the best I’ve had in football.

“So it’s with a heavy heart, I tell you that I will not continue this journey together because I had to return home for family reasons.

“If I have to return to India in the future, we have agreed that Jamshedpur will be my first choice of work if my services are required at that time.

“I have a massive attachment to the club and consider it my home.

“Even though we didn’t have fans in the stands, we could feel their love and passion for the players and the staff.


“We did our best to give them a team they would be proud of, a team that became ISL champions and the best team in the country.

“I would like to thank the management, the staff, the players and all the supporters for their constant and unwavering support.

“I will miss you all. Jam Ke Khelo.”
