On Friday, the legendary Indian football Bhaichung Bhutia appreciated the ATK Mohun Bagan’s decision to retain the green and maroon jersey. He also said that the entity (ATK Bagan) must hire professionals to run the show without any “interference.” Here, he referred “interference” to East Bengal’s tie-up with Quess Corp. East Bengal had 70% of stake yet made a premature exit soon.
During an interview with PTI, Bhutia said- “The important thing now is to get professional people and let them run the show. If the directors are trying to run it and keep interfering with the coaches and management, then I think it’s not going to work,” Source: Republic World.
Further, he added- “They have made the first step, now it’s time to get professional and let them run the club which I’m confident Mr. Sanjiv Goenka would do it. Being a successful businessman, he knows how to get the right people in the right place. Earlier, they were McDowell Mohun Bagan. It’s very difficult to say from the fans’ perspective, but it’s a welcome thing that they have kept the colour and the logo.” Source: Republic World.
During the first board of directors meeting of ATK Mohun Bagan Private Limited, it was decided to retain the green and maroon jersey. However, a slight change in the boat emblem will be expected.
Considering it as a welcoming step, the former Mohun Bagan came forward and urged ATK to reach out to its fans. And said- “Now it’s up to the club how they would reach out to the fans. They have taken the first step.” Source: Republic World.
