The Bagan fans were awaiting the Nehru Cup champion captain and no sooner had he entred club premises the club atmosphere became a jubiliant one!
India's victory at the Nehru Cup will go down in the pages of history as yet another important victory of the Indian team under a Bagan captain. In 1951 India received Gold Medal at the Asian Games for football under the captaincy of Sailen Manna and again in 1962 Asian Gold medal for football under captain Chuni Goswami are a few to mention.
The team has received a boost of convidence before the Fed Cup with the coming of Bhaichung and Barreto will atlast find a quality partner upfront!
The Bagan team leave for Ludhiana on the 4th of September.
