I-League 2017-18: 5 Mohun Bagan players to watch out for
Mohun Bagan will play against Minerva FC in the I-League opener this year
Mohun Bagan is a potential contender for the I-League title this year and are likely to reclaim it after a gap of 2 two years, with East Bengal being the only threat to the Mariners. Most of the star players for the last three seasons have left the club to play in the glamorous Indian Super League. Yet, mastermind Sanjoy Sen along with deputy Shankarlal Chakraborty have managed to stitch together a formidable side.
Let us have a look at the players who will play a vital role for Mohun Bagan in their hunt for a record 5th League title:
#5 Dipanda Dicka
Mohun Bagan roped in Dipanda Dicka at the beginning of this season though he played for Mohammedan Sporting Club during the Calcutta Football League. He represented Shillong Lajong FC in the I-League last year and was the striker of the tournament scoring 11 goals in 17 matches.
Continuing his form in the Calcutta Football League, he found the back of the net 12 times in the 9 matches when he played for the black and white outfit. The Cameroonian is a prolific striker and is expected to offer a goal fest if the team co-ordination works according to the plan.
Along with Ansumana Kromah and winger Sony Norde, Mohun Bagan arguably have the best attack in the I-League. With East Bengal being the only other strong team in the league, the chances of the century-old club winning the annual tournament is very bright.
