Odafe rested for Federation Cup! Tight scheule worry Karim!

According AIFF, only two foreigners can play in the Federation Cup for each club and accordingly Mohun Bagan AC has declared its two. Peter Odafe, the tall Nigerian defender, who has ensured a tight defense for Bagan with his towering headers an timely tackles, has been rested by the coach, and the two Brazilians, Jose Ramirez Barreto and Marcos Perriera will play. Not that Odafe is any less better than Marcos, but its just that the coach feels that he is need of a midfielder who can control the match, like Marcos, while the defense without Odafe might look doubtful, but Karim has trust in his inform defenders to cover the missing of Odafe.
Tight Federation Cup schedule worry Karim!
The AIFF though is ever so inclined to take their steps towards professional football, their attempts and ways still remain unprofessional. The Fed Cup, which is the second important tournament in the country has started off from today, 4th December and Mohun Bagan will play their first match on the 12th! Total unprofessional approach has ruined a chance to experience some quality football as the AIFF has scheduled Mohun Bagan's matches almost one after the other. If Mohun Bagan do reach the Finals of their ever so favourite tournament, they would have to play 5 matches in 10 days. Karim is worried about the fatigue factor and renouncing such schedule he vows that his team will give the best.
