Bagan rope in Balwant

Calcutta: Given his performance so far in his career, Balwant Singh sounds confident of not being cowed down by pressure when he dons the Mohun Bagan jersey this season.

On Saturday, Bagan made an official announcement of the 27-year-old striker’s inclusion. “What’s important is whether I’m able to continue the form I showed last season.

“I’m not worried about pressure or the level of expectations. I’m sure if I try my best and give my 100 per cent, neither club officials nor supporters will go against me… They are clever enough to understand the efforts players put in,” Balwant, who scored 10 goals for Churchill Brothers in the last I-League, said.

An impressive show for Bagan will also help him cement his place in the national team, believes Balwant.
