The decision was on expected lines as East Bengal had roped in Bhowmick to assist Jamil after their poor fourth-place finish in the I-League.

The combination failed to do the job and the veteran Bhowmick had publicly expressed his disappointment after their shocking 1-4 loss to Bengaluru FC in the Super Cup summit clash in Bhubaneswar.

“It’s a miserable performance by Khalid Jamil. We have already sent a letter to him that we cannot continue with him at the present moment,” East Bengal secretary Kalyan Majumder said.

Having guided Aizawl FC to their maiden I-League triumph, Jamil was roped in amid fanfare with a two-year contract.

But the contract had a clause that allowed both parties to part ways after six months with a notice period of two months.
