East Bengal likely to join ISL
After the rival team Mohun Bagan joined hands with ISL, East Bengal also likely to break into the Hero Indian Super League. A top official from East Bengal said that “East Bengal will ‘surely and soon’ follow traditional rivals Mohun Bagan into the Indian Super League, as in the recent years the club have been facing financial problem.
However Ranjit Bajaj the former owner of Minerva Punjab FC expressed his desire to buy 70 percent of Quess East Bengal FC shares and bag the club’s sporting rights. Last edition I-League winners Mohun Bagan’s merger with reigning ISL champions ATK have brought joy among football fans in Kolkata and East Bengal fans are also hoping to see their team in ISL.
