ATK Mohun Bagan will be looking to reverse its fortunes under a new head coach when it meets North East United FC at the Fatorda on Tuesday. The last year’s runner-up severed ties with its Spanish head coach Antonio Lopez Habas just to announce the arrival of his compatriot Juan Ferrando on the eve of its seventh outing of the season, on Monday.

Looking for its first ISL title ever since its merger early last year, ATK MB’s hopes suffered a setback as it went winless in the last four rounds putting Habas at the end of the management’s ire. Ferrando, who had a mixed bag of success with FC Goa, was literally usurped from his employers by ATK MB to helm its remaining journey in the ISL.
