Two-time Indian Super League (ISL) champions Chennaiyin FC (CFC) on Saturday announced that head coach John Gregory has signed a new deal that keeps him at the club till the end of the 2019-20 season.

In his first season in India, John led CFC to a second ISL title in the 2017-18 campaign, thus helping them become the first side from the competition to qualify for the prestigious Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup. And despite a disappointing 2018-19 ISL campaign, Chennaiyin went on to finish as 2019 Super Cup runners-up last month and currently occupy top spot midway through the 2019 AFC Cup group stage.

"It truly is a great feeling extending my stay with the Chennaiyin family. My journey so far in India has really given me the whole range of emotions and experience, after the ISL title triumph in the first season followed by the disappointment in the same competition last season. And I feel I have some unfinished business here," John said.

"The objective is to reward our loyal and unconditional supporters with a memorable AFC Cup journey and the chance to challenge for a third ISL trophy. We will all fight together and certainly come back stronger than ever before to achieve these goals," he added.
