It was an astounding image at the East Bengal training facilities on Thursday as fans saw 7 foreigners training together at the same time. Costa Rican defender Johnny Acosta arrived on Monday and joined the practice session after the team returned from Kerala but the team is yet to finalize who is to be axed and make way for the World Cup star, hence all 7 of the current foreigners were seen together in the training.
The team management is expected to announce the departure of one of the foreign players, as coach Mario Rivera would be announcing his team for the Real Kashmir match. The most likely to get axed would be among the two strikers Marcos de la Espada and Ansumana Kromah.
As per our sources, it would be Liberian striker Ansumana Kromah who is getting the axe as Marcos Espada would get saved for his complex contract situation with the club. It will be easier for the management to release Kromah without bearing any added costs.
Jhonny Acosta would become the 9th foreigner for the season for the Red and Gold brigade and with just 5 more matches remaining in the I-League, it is to see what duration the club signs the Costa Rican World Cup star.
