East Bengal FC fans do have some good news afterall as former defender and Costa Rican World Cup star Johnny Acosta is all set to arrive in Kolkata after he has received his visa today.
As per reports, the Red and Gold team management is trying their best to make sure Johnny Acosta arrives in Kolkata by Sunday. Although, as thought previously he will miss out on the game against Churchill Brothers on Saturday but the arrival of the World Cup star will surely boost the squad which was facing defensive issues and had only two Indian centre backs deployed on duty.
The arrival of Johnny Acosta means one of the current squad members will have to be released and the team management is yet to finalize the name. Coach Mario Rivera does have the game against Churchill Brothers as the final scrutiny before axing one from his squad. However, the Liberian striker Ansumana Kromah, after his controversial statement to the media about the team management and coach surely could be the one to get the axe and make way for Johnny Acosta.
