Margao, Nov 13 (PTI) Churchill Brothers have roped in former Ukrainian defender Mykola Shevchenko as their head coach for the upcoming I-League season, starting November 25.
The I-League kicks-off on November 25 with Churchill Brothers likely to take on East Bengal in an away match at Kolkata.
Shevchenko, who played for Churchill Brothers as a defender in 2000, arrived in Goa on November 10 and has taken over the reigns of the team from today.
The Ukrainian have also played for Dempo during their unsuccessful campaign in the second division National Football League (NFL) in 2001.
Alfred Fernandes, who was looking after the team, said: “It’s a well balanced side and will look more stronger after six foreigners — five Nigerians and one Brazilian — join the side later this month.”
