“Now it's time for me to move on ”. :- Harmanjot Singh Khabra
Harmanjot Singh Khabra the utility man for East Bengal for last 7 years !
Khabra started his football career from Tata Football Acedamy . The Player whom all the coaches ‘LIKED’ to have , as he could be used anywhere in the playing pitch. The man who was drafted to attacking third when needed or to Right Back when the defense needed & finally a CDM when team was in crisis for a connector between defense & attackers !! The Punjabi Lad joined the club in 2009 from Sporting Club De Goa , he was a player of high caliber.
Then a youngstar he was a must play in midfield for a struggling East Bengal team in 2009. He was used in different positions by different coaches & he never let anyone down ! He was pivotal in the team`s success for last 7 years. As a player he won 3 Fed Cup, 6 CFL, 1 Super Cup , 1 IFA SHEILD & Semi Fnalist of AFC cup. He scored several times with his accurate heading skills & also long rangers ! Among those the header against arch rivals Mohun Bagan in the Derby (which MB eventually didnt play full time ) would be remmembered specially.
He dawned the Indian National Jersey playing from East Bengal in the year 2011 against Qatar. Also he served as a Captain for his club in the year 2014.Other than a good player HSK7 was a fans favourite as he was very humble human being !!
According to social media status published by him HSK7 played his last match in the red & gold jersey against shillong lajong on the 04th of May. He then said (quoted) “Now it's time for me to move on ”.
With this note we wish him lots of success for his future ahead.
