Renedy Singh played his last game in charge as SC East Bengal’s interim coach in the Indian Super League (ISL). But it was a 1-0 loss against Jamshedpur in Tuesday night’s fixture at the Athletic Stadium in Bambolim, Goa. So, Renedy Singh ends his term as SCEB’s interim manager on a low note, with not a single win throughout.
Still, the admirable Indian coach has reacted after his side conceded a goal late in the game.
Despite losing thus, Singh admitted that he is proud of the effort put out by his boys.
“It’s really sad to concede a goal in 88 or 89 minutes but I am really proud of the boys and the way they worked hard. If they continue doing that, it will be better for the team then we will be in a better position if we continue to fight like this,” interim head coach Renedy Singh said.
The previous two games had ended in draws, with the first tied football match against Bengaluru (1-1). SCEB also tied football scores with Mumbai City (0-0) before Singh fielded an all-Indian football players XI against Jamshedpur FC.
“Today, there were some great players in the Jamshedpur team also but the [East Bengal] Indian boys, the way we started, the way they fought while defending and attacking, it was something great to watch,” the SCEB interim said.

Now, the 42-year-old hands over charge of SC East Bengal to head coach Mario Rivera.
All the while, SCEB are yet to confirm Renedy Singh’s own future at the club.
“We should believe in ourselves,” Singh said, in his parting message. “We know we are playing with better foreigners but we fought as a team and that’s why we Indians need to believe in ourselves and that we can do well.”
“So what I have learned from the last three matches is that Indians or whatever, we have to fight as one. If we fight as one, we can get results. This is a great experience, if you fight as one, anything is possible,” Singh signed out.
