Bagan practice in full swing!

Bagan players are working hard before the Fed Cup under the supervision of Bagan coach Periera and the new Brazilian physio Leonardo. Leonardo is not happy with the fitness level of the team and intends on boosting the fitness of the team before their Fed Cup campaign.
Barreto who is suffering from a minor injury is trying his best to raise his fitness level.
The Bagan coach will soon get Bhaichung and Manju in practice before the Fed Cup but he will be missing the services of Sanjiv Maria and Dipak Mondal who are out with injuries.

Isfaq Ahmed also has been suffering from a minor injury in his hamstring. However on a personal talk he reaveled that the Telegraph's report of his European venture and inclination is not perfectly true, because he personally does not feel like leaving Mohun Bagan for the Tier II League in Europe. However he said that his brothers who are already there has been urging him but he is staying in Bagan. However the payroll in Europe is bigger than what he is getting in Bagan and if he does strike a lucrative deal, we might find him in Europe.
