ISL 2021 LIVE – Kerala Blasters LIVE: The hope for a stronger season is driven by the appointment of Serbian coach Ivan Vukomanovic who has rebuilt the entire squad. The 44-year-old is the eleventh different manager to take charge of the Blasters since 2014 and the eighth one who has been appointed in a full-time capacity.

Vukomanovic has vast experience of coaching in the premier divisions of Belgium, Slovakia, and Cyprus and will look to bring all that to play to elevate the Blasters this season and meet the demands of one of the fanbase that has backed the club through thick and thin.

Kerala Blasters – New Team, New Coach: Players To Watch Out For

Defence the Focus Area: The Blasters have looked to strengthen their defence with three key defensive signings: Ruivah Hormipan from RoundGlass Punjab, Enes Sipovic from Chennaiyin FC, and Marko Leskovic from Dinamo Zagreb. Replacing Lalruatthara at left-back is Sanjeev Stalin, who is touted as one of the most talented players in India.

Forward line adds 2 new foreigners: Vukomanovic’s side have added two foreign forwards in Alvaro Vazquez and Jorge Diaz from Sporting de Gijon and Atletico Platense, respectively. They have also roped in experienced Adrian Luna and Harmanjot Khabra to revamp their midfield.

Strengths: With the experience of Vukomanovic, the Blasters will be looking to build a team that can’t be beaten easily. The new signings in defence and attack have provided a good balance to the Blasters’ squad. Stalin’s pace and agility, combined with Vazquez and Diaz’s attacking abilities, will give much needed impetus to their attack.

Weaknesses: The Blasters managed to keep only three clean sheets in a total of 20 games in the 2020-21 season and it’s an area where Vukomanovic will want to see improvement. Their away form also needs addressing as the Blasters won only one out of ten away games last season.
