Bagan to feature in Friend's Cup! Douglas to be released before NFL!

Mohun Bagan will fly off to Bangladesh along with Mohammedan SP. to play in the "Friend's Cup" which will oraganised in Bangladesh. The date has not yet been finalised, but it is reported that an official invitation had been sent to Mohun Bagan AC and that club Secretary Anjan Mitra has accepted it on the club's behalf.
Meanwhile, Bagan play their Round 11 game on the 28th of October against Railway F.C. Bagan will be missing the services of their Brazilian Ace, Jose Ramirez Barreto who will be out on account of two yellow cards and hence Lalam is most likely to start with Sewram Gobin. Today, however, Rauf Khan suffered from minor injury in the practice session.
Club treasurer, Debashish Dutta, today confirmed that except for Barreto, not a single foreigner has his place settled in the team. Douglas who has been brought back for the remainder of the CFL most probably will not feature for Mohun Bagan in the NFL along with Peter Odafe if they fail to perform. In which case, the search for not only the third foreigner, rather two foreigners is still on for Bagan.
