Calcutta, June 7: East Bengal’s new South African trainer Kevin Jackson is shocked at the “strength of the boys” after spending a few days with the boys.
“Strengthwise, they are really in a bad shape,” Jackson said Saturday. He feels that at least three to four months of hard training is imperative for them to reach the required strength.
“I’ll be there for only a month, but the boys need follow the fitness regime and work very hard to keep them in shape,” Jackson added. He, however, felt that the team’s running ability is much better.
The players recruited this season, were given their jerseys Saturday. Bhaichung Bhutia got the No. 12 shirt white Mahesh Gawli got 16.
