Matos ‘Insulted’ As He Could Not Access Dressing Room


Kolkata: Former Portugese forward Luis Norton De Matos lost his cool on Thursday when he could not get access to dressing room at Yuba Bharati Kridangan or Saltalke stadium here in Kolkata.

Prior to match between Mohun Bagan and Indian Airlines on Sunday, Indian Airlines was practising since three hours at the Saltlake stadium. Matos arrived at the ground in the afternoon but he could not take his team to the ground for practice as he found the dressing room was full.

He kept waiting to get access to the dressing room first in the team bus, then at the ground. The Yuva Bharati officials tried to provide a dressing room on the adjacent side of the field but Matos was kept waiting for twenty more minutes on the ground.

The former World cupper lost his patience and finally got back to the team bus to leave for the hotel. But the officials calmed him down and provided a space in the main ground for the practice of his team.
