East Bengal Ropes In Players from Aizwal & Churchill Brothers FC.
After a bright start in I-League 2016 - 2017 Kingfisher East Bengal faded away to yet another debacle when their campaign both in I-League & Fed Cup took a setback. After the departure of Trevor James Morgan, the team struggled in Fed Cup eventually losing out to arch-rivals Mohun Bagan in the semis.
After a disappointing season & scarcity of I-League prolonged for 14 years & counting with national silverware absent for 5 + years Kingfisher East Bengal has already started to restructure their squad fro the upcoming season. The latest news arrived when the Red & Gold Kolkata giants roped in stars who glittered & gave Aizwal FC their maiden I-League title.
If the sources are to be believed Lalram Chullova (LB), Brandon Vanlalremdika both the youngsters along with the main Syrian craftsmen for Khalid Jamil's team Mahmoud Al-Amna has already agreed & signed in favour of Kolkata giants. Richard Costa the midfielder from Churchill Brothers is also a done deal.
It is interesting to be seen if East Bengal enters into ISL will they be able to rope & restructure a squad that may give them silverware to end the mortification of several East Bengal supporters.
