East Bengal Football Club are running against time as their chances to feature in this season’s Indian Super League are getting bleak each passing day. The club is even yet to finalize about their new investors and this has put some of the players who were recruited by the club on alert, including Iranian winger Omid Singh.
Omid Singh, as was already mentioned, was to join East Bengal FC only if the club participated in the ISL. However, with the recent turn of events and the uncertainty looming over East Bengal has made him to keep backup options open for himself. As rumoured, the 29 year old has been in talks with at least three other ISL clubs.
According to rumours, there are few more Indian names who could follow the same suit as Omid if the club fails to play in the ISL. The club was in a spending spree in April and May and had signed almost 20 players for the new season including big names like Balwant Singh, CK Vineeth, Eugeneson Lyngdoh etc.
The prospect of ISL has been the most sought after thing for the fans as unofficially, it is the top most league of the country, with the winner securing a place in the AFC Champions League group stages. The Red and Gold officials have been vocal for the last few months about their wishes to participate in the tournament this season however, due to various reasons they are still unable to confirm an investing group who could push them into the ISL.
