Indian football news: Eelco Schattorie wants to “take the bull by the horns”

As reported in Indian football news by the official website of NorthEast United FC, Eelco Schattorie said, “Firstly I would like to thank the management for giving me the opportunity of becoming the Head Coach of NorthEast United. I am ready to ‘take the bull by the horns’ as I always like to say! I’m not a very diplomatic person, I always like to work hard and make things happen on the field. The only thing that I care about is my players, the club and the supporters.”

Speaking about the upcoming ISL 2018-19 season, Schattorie was hopeful of making waves in ISL news and Indian football latest news with some “beautiful” performances. As reported in Indian football news, Eelco Schattorie said, “Hopefully it’s going to be a beautiful season and I’m looking forward to meeting the fans back in Guwahati and lets make it a beautiful journey!”

Eelco Schattorie will continue to work with former Chelsea FC manager Avram Grant, who recently returned to NorthEast United FC as their new Technical Advisor. The ISL team has been one of the most inconsistent performers in ISL football, and had finished last in the table rankings of the last edition of ISL football. With the latest appointment of Schattorie, Avram Grant, and a horde of players coming in through ISL transfers, NEUFC would sure be hoping to make it to their first-ever playoff spot in ISL history.
