Bagan seek devine intervention!

The club officials today along with every team member and the coach paid a visit to Kalighat to pray for a better performance in the rest of the I league. In the past two matches balls have stayed out of the opposition's goal where as balls have got entangled in the Bagan goal more often. Balls hitting the post, defence committing horrible mistakes have made President Sadhan Bose, aka Tutu Bose comment that " I pray to Maa Kali that she forgives of us of any wrong doing, if we have done unknowingly, and may she keep the players free of injury and may the Bagan score goals instead of hitting the post." He also joined, "Maa Kali has never denied Mohun Bagan, and I am sure She will not this time."
The whole team including Bhaichung, Habibur, Venkatesh, Manju every one went except for Barreto who was back at the club ground nursing his injury.
On another development, Bagan in search of the fourth foreigner has contacted a Vasco Da Gama midfielder who is to reach Kolkata shortly.
