Fifa slams Bagan again
The Fifa has again pulled up Mohun Bagan as defaulters. Having paid up the demand of $ 11,000 to George Ekeh was not the end, it seems.
Fifa has now sent a letter to the AIFF, asking Mohun bagan to cough up the amount due to another foreigner on its rolls: Isa Musah Eroje. The money will have to be paid “immediately”, the letter says, and as a penalty Fifa has ordered that Mohun Bagan may not enrol any foreigner between November 15 and 30.
