Kolkata: East Bengal’s goalkeeper Dibyendu Sarkar was reportedly approached by Mohun Bagan for being a part of their squad for the upcoming CFL but Sarkar decided to stay back at his club.
Bagan head coach Sanjoy Sen was impressed by the goalkeeper’s performances and had approached East Bengal to release the player.
As a matter of fact, the talks between both these rival clubs had begun as well but Sarkar, who spent the last three years of his life with East Bengal decided against joining the Mariners as he feels that there are a lot of goalkeepers already present with the former I-League champions as a result of which he might not get an opportunity to play.
There was also this confusion that whether East Bengal would sell of one it’s important players to a rival club but now all the confusion and the questions have been brushed away given the fact that goalkeeper already has made up his mind.
“If I get playing chances, I would like to prove myself to the team. I am recently undergoing practice with the team and would like to outdo myself. There is not much competition for the place in the team. The coach has his trust on me, I would like to return the favour if I get any playing chance,” said Sarkar.
