D’Cunha out for three weeks
East Bengal’s Alvito D’Cunha, who was injured in Monday’s Super Division match against Railway FC, will be out of action for three weeks. According to club doctor Shanti Ranjan Dasgupta, the star player has suffered some fibre tear in the upper part of the thigh, which means he will be on complete rest for a week. D’Cunha can start working out after that but will not be fit for football for at least two more weeks.
