Post Mohun Bagan’ s win over Tampines Rovers FC in the AFC Champions League, coach Sanjoy Sen lashed out at the All India Football Federation (AIFF) on defending champions Mohun Bagan’s fixture congestion and their reluctance to reschedule their I League fixture
Sources from within the AIFF informed TheHardTackle that according to the federation rules, if any team needs to change the date of a particular fixture, they need to intimate the federation at least 15 days ahead of the match. However, the source confirmed that Mohun Bagan had failed to informed the AIFF within the stipulated time, and now the match cannot be postponed, with most of the slots already being taken up.
Mohun Bagan coach Sanjoy Sen had blasted the AIFF after leading his team to victory by becoming the first Indian side to win an AFC Champions League qualifier. However, bad news as soon to dawn upon the Green and Maroon camp, as they learnt after the match that the AIFF have not taken kindly to their request of postponing the weekend I-League fixture against DSK Shivajians.
Sanjoy Sen was visibly irked with this issue at the post match press conference, even went on to suggest that Indian football was in the “wrong hands”, referring to the AIFF’s decision.
The Mariners would in fact have to travel to Pune for the Saturday fixture, and then immediately take a long fight to Jinan, China, for their match against Shandong Luneng Taishan FC, in the second round of AFC Champions League qualifiers.
To top that off, the Mariners would also have to adjust from playing in 30+degrees Celsius in Pune to around zero degrees in Jinan, and they would just have two days to acclimatise themselves to the weather before they take to the field.
