Bagan to sign 11 outstation recruits today
Mohun Bagan will sign in 11 of their outstation recruits Friday. Non-payment of dues had earlier kept the players from completing the formalities. Transfer documents of two players — Marcos Pereira and Mahesh Singh — are yet to obtained. Some club officials, belonging to the ruling faction, said Thursday morning that the club doesn’t have the money to retain Jose Ramirez Barreto. However, the assistant general secretary later said that though there is “some problem” which can’t be disclosed, he is hopeful that the Brazilian ace will arrive in the first week of July.
