AIZAWL: Reigning I-League champions Aizawl FC on Tuesday appointed Santosh Kashyap as their coach for the rest of the season following the surprise dismissal of Portuguese Paulo Menezes.

"I will try and do my best with the club," Kashyap told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

Aizawl sacked Menezes along with assistant Izan Martin on Monday after a string of underwhelming performances.
