Career of Naushad Moosa
Naushad Moosa began his professional football career with East Bengal F.C., a team in the National Football League. On November 9, 1997, Moosa was a part of East Bengal’s historic victory over Verdy Kawasaki in the Asian Cup Winners Cup, in which a Samuel Omollo goal in the 61st minute gave East Bengal a 1–0 victory at the Salt Lake Stadium. However, East Bengal was still eliminated from the tournament after Verdy won the first leg of the two-legged event 5–2. Mossa made history again with East Bengal thirteen days later, when he assisted the Kolkata team in winning the IFA Shield against KBL-FC Kochi, which East Bengal won 3–2 at the Salt Lake Stadium.
However, Moosa’s tenure with East Bengal came to an end in 1998 when he joined with Mahindra & Mahindra, a Mumbai-based team.
Naushad Moosa did not achieve the same level of success at Mahindra & Mahindra as he did at East Bengal. His best chance at silverware with Mahindra & Mahindra occurred on November 12, 2000, when Mahindra & Mahindra faced Mohun Bagan in the final of the 2000 Durand Cup, but Bagan won 2–1 thanks to an extra-time golden goal from R.C. Prakash.
In February 2013, Naushad Moosa was hired to take over as head coach of Air India of the I-League after Godfrey Pereira left. His first match in charge was against ONGC on March 3, 2013. ONGC fought back to win 2–1 after Air India grabbed the lead in the 41st minute.  During his three-month time with the club, he failed to win a single game, and Air India ended 13th, just above the relegation zone, at the end of the season.
