Mohammedan Sporting Club on Tuesday introduced its newly-appointed English coach Christopher Evans, hoping to improve its position in the forthcoming Bangladesh Premier League points table.

Mohammedan had never won the BPL title since the inception of professional competition in 2007, though they finished as runners-up on three occasions.

Mohammedan is one of the oldest clubs in Bangladesh. I know the history of the club; people are talking about it and the structure of the club is very high. So, for me, it is a great opportunity to come here and work with them. I managed a number of clubs at different level in England,’ said Evans.

I have also experience to work with the Under-16 and Under-18 teams of the Norwich City and also worked in the Chelsea Foundation with their Under-12 team for a short period ,’ said 44-year old UEFA ‘A’ license holder Evans.

The coach said that before deciding to coach Mohammedan he made some homework over the standard of Bangladesh’s football and club culture.I have clear idea over Bangladesh’s football because I made some studies before coming here. So, I think it will not be difficult for me to work here. he would try his best to improve the position of Mohammedan. It is very difficult to set the target because we finished the last season in the fifth position. I will try to make a good result and if we can improve the year’s position, it will be good.

Lokman Hossain Bhuiyan, director in-charge of Mohammedan, believed that Evans would be able to help them to improve their position in the league table.We are not saying that that we have formed a champion team but I believe that if our players get proper coaching then they have the ability to make a decent result.

Previously we signed many so-called star players but they failed to bring any success for us so we decided to form a squad with some young and experienced players.

We have already finalised 25 local players with the mixture of experienced and young players and we have a plan to sign four quality foreigners.

Team manager Amirul Islam Babu informed that they signed Evans after getting reference from Bangladesh Football Federation’s technical and strategic director Paul Smalley.

Evans will be introduced with the players today and he will start the team’s training at BUET ground soon.
