Bhaichung Joins! Ishfaq to sit out for 2 more weeks!

Bhaichung Bhutia, who came back from the National Camp after winning the AFC Challenge Cup 2008 for India has joined Bagan practice yesterday. He did some light training at the club ground and spent much time at the gymnasium. Today though he spent the entire time at the club tent stretching along with Lalawmpuia and Ishfaq. Later Lalawmpuia and Bhutia headed for the CAB gym. Bhaichung is taking time out as he seems to tired from the hectic schedule of the IFA and the AIFF, with the CFL not over yet, I league starting from the 12th September.

Ishfaq to sit out for 2 more weeks!
Ishfaq Ahmed who had a good time going at the beginning of the season with Karim making him the play-maker for Bagan was suffering from Hamstring injury. Today he informed that he's yet to be fully fit and he has no idea when he would make it to the starting 11. He has started practice just yesterday and certainly would take time to get in the groove. Today he mainly focused on stretching in side the club tent with Barreto, Bhutia and Lalawmpuia, but later joined the coach in the practice pitch.
