The transfer season could not go any better for Bagan fans this year. Recruiting Odafa had already put the cat among the pigeons for the other teams in the I League and now to add to their woes, Sunil Chettri after his stint with the Kansas City Wizards, in the MLS, has joined to reinforce the Bagan forward line with the likes of Jose Ramirez Barreto and Odafa Okili.
Sheer fear is installed in the hearts of any defender at the mere name of Odafa and / or Jose Ramirez Barreto and this season Bagan officials have made sure that their will be no dearth of fire power in the team by adding Sunil Chettri to the side. The national team striker will return to Kolkata on the 29th of this month.
This will be the home coming for the talented India striker who during his teens was first seen playing for Mohun Bagan in local leagues and National League and had managed to make 18 first team appearance and score as many as 8 goals between 2002 to 2005 before moving to JCT Mills.
The Delhi born boy managed to impress the recruiters of Kansas City Wizards and had signed a deal in 2010 that saw him spending the year in the American league. He came to serve the nation in the Asia Cup and later in 2011 signed a half season contract with United sports club and scored 7 goals in 7 appearances.
