‘Non Co-Operation’ Mohun Bagan Officials Resign


Kolkata: In a sudden twist of events, top Mohun Bagan officials Srinjoy Bose, the assistant general secretary, and Debasish Dutta, the finance secretary, have announced their resignation from the club in a press conference on Monday in Kolkata.

Srinjoy Bose and Debasish Dutta played a pivotal role in the Mariners winning their first I-League title in 2015 and the Federation Cup 2016.

However, just days after the conclusion of the Hero I-League where Mohun Bagan finished third above their arch-rivals East Bengal, they have resigned citing differences among other members of the board.

The club’s assistant secretary Bose and director-cum- finance secretary Dutta put in their papers on Monday afternoon and later called a media conference at the Calcutta Sports Journalists’ Club to announce their decision.

“This is not an overnight decision. We have been thinking about it for about four years now. We have not found a solution and the situation has worsened. No one is indispensable,” Bose told reporters.

They (Anjan Mitra and his office bearers) have a lot of time left to make a champion squad for next season,” he added. Dutta also addressed the media saying that in no situation they would reconsider their resignation.
