Former India captain and current United Sikkim co-owner and player Bhaichung Bhutia has backed the decision to ban Mohun Bagan from the I-League.

Bhaichung, who played for Mohun Bagan in two spells, criticised the Mohun Bagan officials for deciding not to field the team in the second half against East Bengal on December 9.

“Officials took decision without thinking of the consequences. Decision not to play can never be supported,” he was quoted saying.

Bhaichung sympathised with the Mohun Bagan supporters and players but the Indian football icon believes rules should be the same for everybody.

“I feel sorry for the fans and the players. Football has to go on. Even if Sachin doesn’t play, cricket goes on. I am sure Mohun Bagan will appeal but the rules have been laid down,” said the former East Bengal player.
