After the huge announcement of the merger between two Kolkata clubs ATK and Mohun Bagan to become a single new entity and play in the Hero ISL from 2020-21 season, East Bengal Club officials too weren’t quiet about the incident.
East Bengal executive committee member Debabrata “Nitu” Sarkar was caught up after the huge announcement. He said, “This is not our subject to make a comment. It’s for Mohun Bagan club’s officials and fans to react and see where they are heading for… It’s none of our business,” Sarkar told PTI.
“We would never sell our club. We will always go by what our fans and members say. They want investors to come but keeping the dignity of the club intact will be our priority. Our members will strive hard to run the club, come what may,” he said.
Debabrata Sarkar also added, “Let be assured, if our neighbour club plays ISL, we too will. Another club from Bengal won’t play the ISL without East Bengal.”
It will be interesting few months coming ahead for the Red and Gold fans as they won’t like if they are left behind from the ISL bandwagon.
