ISL club Delhi Dynamos part ways with coach Miguel Angel Portugal
Indian Super League (ISL) side Delhi Dynamos have parted ways with their Spanish coach Miguel Angel Portugal after the 62-year-old was appointed coach of Segunda Division side Granada.
The side from the Indian capital had finished eighth in the 10-team ISL under Portugal, a former Real Madrid B manager, and were knocked out in the qualifying round of the inaugural Super Cup by relegated I-League side Churchill Brothers.
Portugal was Delhi’s fourth coach in four seasons of ISL, and the franchise said that the search for Portugal’s successor for the 2019 edition of the tournament has begun.
“I had a very memorable time here in Delhi Dynamos and in the ISL,” said Portugal in a statement.
“The club showed great belief in my abilities this season and even though we didn’t win the trophy, the fans were happy with the way we played football and that makes me happy,” he added. “I am thankful to all the supporters who showed such love for me and the whole staff the entire season.”
