Its like a dream come true! Its a once in a life time occassion!
It was Pele 30 years ago, an now its time for the Argentinian Legen Maraona to pay Mohun Bagan a visit! Out of his packe schedule in Kolkata, Maradona is all set to pay Mohun Bagan AC a visit and joy is already in the air.
It is a matter of immense pride for the Mariners, as Maradona will only visit the Mohun Bagan club premises and spend some time with the young talents of the city.
