What's the story?

After a dramatic resignation post the Mariners' 2-1 loss at the hands of Chennai City FC, earlier this week, Sanjoy Sen may come back in the capacity of a head coach at Mohun Bagan.

In case you didn't know...

Sanjoy Sen resigned from the Mohun Bagan head coach post in a post-match press conference after a 2-1 loss to a 10-man Chennai City team. While he was addressing the media, a number of fans broke into press conference area and hurled stones at the former Bagan boss.

Sen's assistant, Shankarlal Chakraborty has since been promoted to the hot seat till the end of this season.

The heart of the matter

When Sanjoy Sen resigned from the head coach post and the financial secretary of the club, Debashish Dutta accepted his resignation, it was apparently a verbal agreement between the two parties.

However, club secretary Anjan Mitra said that there was no written resignation and said that Sen may have to and take over his position as the head coach once again if the club asks him to do so.

"The club officials are sad about the conditions under which he had to leave Mohun Bagan. If I was there at the ground that day, I wouldn't have let this happen. If the team needs him, he will have to come back as the coach again," club secretary Anjan Mitra said to local media.

What next?

It is still to be seen if Sen comes back to Mohun Bagan or not but the insistence of Anjan Mitra to have him back may just come to fruition. Mohun Bagan next play Aizawl FC on Sunday at the Salt Lake Stadium.

Sportskeeda's take

Sen has had a good stint at the club as he led them to the I-League title in 2015 and had not lost a single match at home before losing to Chennai City at the Mohun Bagan ground.

It is in the best interest of both the parties that Sen comes back and resumes his post as the head coach.
