Indian Super League runner-up ATK Mohun Bagan has decided to retain Spanish head coach Antonio Lopez Habas for another season.
The most successful coach of the ISL, Habas will enter his sixth season with the Indian club. He won two ISL titles (2014 and 2019-20) with ATK before merging with Mohun Bagan last year.
The new agreement will mark Habas' association with the Kolkata club for five seasons.
The 63-year-old Spaniard spent a season with the now-estranged FC Pune City (2016-2017).
“I am happy that the authorities have kept faith in me and our technical staff. It will inspire all of us a lot before the AFC Cup and will increase our moral strength. Our goal now is to bring success to the club internationally, ”reacted Habas from his home in Madrid. "We are committed to maintaining the trust of members, supporters and officials."
ATKM's next goal will be to do well in the AFC Cup 2022 qualifier.
