wall bureau: ATK Mohun Bagan defeated Bengaluru in the tiebreaker to become ISL champions. Sanjeev Goyenka made a small but big announcement for the supporters of Gangapad Club after that victory in the Goa ground.
The owner said that the team named Mohun Bagan would not play in the ISL from now on. The name of the team will be Mohun Bagan Super Giants.
There is rebellion in this name. The slogan “Take it off” has heated up the area over the past few years. A large section of the green and maroon supporters had their say, sprinkling ink on the club’s tradition of crossing it in front of the club’s common mother.
In Yuva Bharti’s gallery, Mohun Bagan supporters taunted everything from boycott campaign on social media to hanging tin foil. Calcutta football has seen divisions and reshuffle of club owners.
This announcement of leadership on Saturday night will undoubtedly bring another spring to the Green Maroons. Lakhs of Mohun Bagan lovers were waiting for a change.
Mohun Bagan champions, cup in giant hand, enter the green-maroon tent
