Albert Roca will be leaving his position as Bengaluru FC's head coach, the club announced on Thursday. Roca opted not to renew his two-year deal owing to personal reasons, the club said.

Roca, who took charge in mid-2016 just before the AFC Cup quarterfinals, ended his tenure on a similar note, guiding the club to a fourth consecutive appearance in the knockout stages of the AFC Cup on Wednesday.

“It was one of the toughest decisions I have had to make in my managerial career, but it’s the right one,” he said.

“Bengaluru FC has been an experience I will always carry with me, no matter where I go. The owners, the management, my staff, players and, most importantly, the fans walked with me every step of this journey and I can never forget the love and support I have received here,” he said.
