How did Kerala Blasters fare last year?

Pretty poorly. The Blasters managed to win only three games in the 2020-21 season of the ISL. They finished 10th in the 11-team league table and were never in with a chance of making the play-offs.

They only recorded three wins and 8 draws in the season, thus ensuring their lowly finish. However, the team are going to be under a new manager this year.

Ivan Vukomanovic of Serbia will be the one taking charge of the side for next season. He’s had stints at Standard Liege and Cyprus side Apollon Limassol.
