Minerva Punjab

I-League champions Minerva Punjab have roped in their new Technical Director and Head-Coach for the upcoming season. UEFA Pro-License holder Paul Munster is going to be the new TD of the Punjab outfit.

Minerva Punjab have long been searching for a Pro-License holder Head Coach as they will require one for appearing in the AFC Champions League Qualifiers in the upcoming season. After the departure of Khogen Singh, Ranjit Bajaj reportedly approached Khalid Jamil and Santosh Kashyap but none of it materialised. Finally the 36-Year Northern Ireland born will be seen at the helm of the defending I-League champions. Munster was last seen as the Head Coach of Swedish outfit Orebro SK U-19 side.

Paul Munster said, “For me, it’s a challenge, a new experience but I am coming here to win. As a player, I’m used to winning leagues, cups, individual awards. Coming here as a coach and working at the highest level in India and also playing in the AFC Champions League, it will be a great experience.”
