Barreto to Join Bagan Practice shortly!

The brazillian ace Jose Ramirez Barreto is reported to have landed in Kolkata today morning. He is expected to join Pahira's pre-season campaign at Durgapur by tommorrow. Yesterday much anxiety had built up at the Bagan Camp when fellow Brazillian coach Pahira was informed that an Aircraft over Brazil(on Barreto's route) had crashed! However it was later assured that Barreto was not on that flight as the Crash victims' names list didnot have his name. He had went back with his family to Brazil after the Super Cup victory and had initially requested club officials to let him off for the CFL and that he would join the team before the Fed Cup. But following the unavailability of other frontline players like Bhutia, Maria(to name a few) who are at the National camp, its was decided that Barreto would play for Bagan in the CFL. Last season he had begun his campaign for Bagan from the Durand Cup. Last season he scored only 8 goals in all the National tournaments for Bagan. The Tally: Durand Cup: 2 Fed Cup: 1(excluding penalty shootouts) NFL: 5 He should be looking forward to putting up a better show this year.
