FC Mangalore’s Coach Biby dons India Colours

Coach Biby Thomas has been synonymous with Indian football for the past decade. After changing the entire landscape of football in Mangalore, he is now up for a bigger challenge – as part of the Indian Team Coaching Staff for the Under-19 Indian National Team.

Remarkably, this is the second time that Coach Biby is with the Indian National Setup after being handpicked by the AIFF Technical Committee. He was previously one of the Assistant Coaches both under Englishman Desmond Bulpin and Irishman Colm Toal in the 2009-11 period with multiple National Teams.

The current role will see Coach Biby join the Indian National Team setup in Bhubaneswar, Odisha as an Assistant Coach under Shuvendu Panda.

“It is always an honour to serve India and this is an opportunity for me to give back to the game which has given me everything. I would like to thank the AIFF Technical Committee and also the entire leadership at Yenepoya Group and FC Mangalore for allowing me to pursue this challenge.”
