Kerala Blasters assistant coach Ishfaq Ahmed was cryptic when referring to the rumours that have linked manager Eelco Schattorie with an exit, following the disappointing season the team has had in the Indian Super League (ISL).
The Blasters are currently in the eighth spot with 14 points and their chances of making it into the play-offs has ended.
"I don't know that (whether Schattorie will continue next season). There are so many rumours, you can't believe all the rumours. We can't predict the future," said Ishfaq.
Ishfaq went on to defend the Dutch coach by pointing out the number of injuries that the team has suffered in key positions and stated that implementing a change in philosophy takes time.
