Mohun Bagan was probably anticipating that a strict action was awaiting from AIFF on Sukhdev Singh issue as Head Coach Shankarlal Chakrobarty already submitted his wishlist of players to the officials which included defenders.
It can be confirmed that the Green and Maroon have roped in a new Indian defender ahead of the new I-League season. Mohun Bagan have struck a deal with Dalraj Singh, a defender from Peerless who performed well in Calcutta Football League this season and caught attention of Bagan gaffer. Dalraj will surely increase the bench-strength of Bagan and especially after the suspension of Sukhdev Singh, the arrival of a new defender will bring a breeze of fresh air among the fans.
Shankarlal has eyed a couple more players who did well in the CFL this season and the management have initiated talks with them as well.
