Jamshedpur FC boss Owen Coyle along with striker Nerijus Valskis and defender Peter Hartley will arrive in India on Thursday…

Jamshedpur FC head coach Owen Coyle will be the second manager in the Indian Super League (ISL) after ATK Mohun Bagan‘s Antonio Lopez Habas to arrive in India on Thursday.

Coyle will be accompanied by Lithuanian forward Nerijus Valskis and English defender Peter Hartley and they will reach Goa on Thursday morning. They will self-quarantine themselves for 14 days before kicking off pre-season training.

Owen Coyle’s son Owen Coyle Junior had posted a farewell message for his father before he left for India.

The Indian players of the club have already reached Goa and are in self-isolation. This is indeed good news for the club faithful.

The Men of Steel have made quite a few excellent additions to their squad this season. Aside from hiring Owen Coyle, they also managed to rope in Chennaiyin’s star striker and ISL’s Golden Boot winner Nerijus Valskis. 

Defender Tiri left the club to sign for ATK Mohun Bagan but the Men of Steel have brought in Nigerian international Stephen Eze and former Motherwell FC skipper Peter Hartley to guard the heart of the defence.

Among new Indian recruits, they have signed Indian international winger Jackichand Singh from FC Goa.
