Ishfaq out of action for 2 weeks! Mohunraj to sign!

Ishfaq Ahmed, the Kashmiri forward, who came to Mohun Bagan last year from Dempo, has found a new lease of life in Bagan and from the beginning of this season, Ishfaq has not failed to impress the specialists and the innumerable mariners. He played a distinguishing role in the Bayern Munich match and he continued his outstanding form in the Santosh Trophy few weeks back held in Kashmir and scored some important goals for his team! In the CFL, under the coaching of Karim Bencherifa, he has found a new role, that of a left winger and no doubt he has been playing a key role in the Bagan midfield. He has undoubtedly developed into a play-maker for Bagan and has been the provider for most of the goals. However after his impressive run in the first three matches, which Bagan winning scoring 3 goals on each ocassion, Isfaq during one of the practice sessions last week had injured himself and after consulting with the doctor, Ishfaq has been advised to stay off the pitch for atleast 2 weeks! Bagan midfield will certainly miss the pace with Ishfaq sitting out but the Bagan coach Karim is more than confident about his teams performance even without Ishfaq.

Mohunraj to sign for Mohun Bagan!
Mohunraj, the promising U19 footballer of Mohun Bagan, who gave the Bagan left back some much wanted solidarity in the last I-League has returned to India few days back after his stint as the India U-19 captain in Malaysia and has already joined practice under Karim for Mohun Bagan. The promising left back will certainly come into the side much to the relief of the Bagan fans who were not happy with the performance of either Sanjoy Boro or Suman Bose in the possition! Bagan officials are keen on getting over with the formalities and are trying to field him against Mohd. Sporting on the 27th. The match was supposed to be held on Sunday, 26th of July, but has been shifted to Monday, 28th July!
