Ashley westwood set to leave Bengaluru FC

Ashley Westwood and Bengaluru FC have parted ways by mutual consents. It has been three years since the former Manchester United man took charge of Bengaluru FC and now he is all set to leave the I-League club.

After Bengaluru’s victory over Hong Kong’s Kitchee SC last week, Westwood informed the club authorities and the players about his decision and future plans.

After being appointed in July 2013, Westwood went on winning the Hero I-League in his debut season with a team which was out of form and badly shaped. He groomed the team very well and all his hard work paid well when Bengaluru FC won the Federation Cup too. But in 2015 Westwood and Co. had a heart-breaking campaign as they ended up as runners-up in the I-League, sitting next to Mohun Bagan, but 2016 was theirs as they did the same thing to Mohun Bagan what Mohun Bagan did to them in 2015.

Westwood initially signed a one-year contract in 2013, but after a successful campaign he accepted a two-year extension which saw him at the club till 2016, but now as the deal has come to an end, both parties want to part their ways on a mutual consent, without the relationship between them being affected.

Bengaluru FC’s owner Parth Jindal, has thanked the 39-year-old departing manager for the major three trophies which he gave to the club during his stay.

Jindal said: “It’s been an extremely difficult time for the management of the club to part ways with Ashley Westwood. The decision hasn’t been the easiest to take but like always, it is one made in the best interests of Bengaluru FC. We sat across the table with Ashley and arrived at a consensus together. We would like to thank Ashley for what has been a phenomenal three years with the club. His work ethic and desire to succeed during his tenure has been second to none and the role he has played in putting BFC on the football map will always be a part of the club’s history. He will always be welcome at BFC. We wish him all the best for the future and I am sure he will move on to bigger league successfully.”
