He has also earlier worked as a manager for East Bengal and Mohun Bagan, and he was key in bringing Aizawl FC to their maiden I-League title in the 2016-17 season. "Khalid has been one of the most sought-after coaches in Indian football," remarked FC Bengaluru United owner Gaurav Manchanda. "He brings with him nuanced leadership and technical skills that stem from his decade-long management and coaching experience.”

"FC Bengaluru United is on an upward growth trajectory; we are excited to be working with Khalid and are confident that we will see the club reach even greater heights under him," he added.

In response to his hiring, Jamil stated, "The FCBU squad is a blend of youth and experience, and I am eager to work with them and share all my learnings.
