East Bengal boss Biswajit Bhattacharjee believes that Ranti Martins is one of the best strikers that the I-League has ever had, as the Nigerian has been preforming consistently at a top level in the league.

On a night when East Bengal won 4-0 against Shillong Lajong FC, Ranti Martins etched his name in the East Bengal history books, as he became the only Lal Holud player to score a hattrick in the first half of an NFL/I-League match.

“We have been missing a lot of chances, but I would say that Ranti’s [Martins] third goal is a wonderful goal. I can’t explain it at all. I’ve seen very few goals like this,” said Bhattacharjee after the match.

“Now the league that we play in is a very tough league. Before, if you said major league, it was just the Calcutta League. A few world cuppers had come to play in the Calcutta League. Some good foreign players had come to play,” siad Bhattacharjee. “But at present, very good players are coming from the world, and churning out performances like this, the credit really goes to Ranti.”

Mendy ‘out of practice’

While Ranti scored a hattrick, another of East Bengal’s star foreign signings Bernard Mendy churned out a very poor performance in the match. There were arguments that Mendy, who is essentially a defender, is not someone who would be able to play too well in the midfield. However coach Bhattacharjee blew these speculations away saying that Mendy is good as a creative force, and needs more game time under his belt, to get good performances out of himself.

“He does not have much match practice. He’s just come in. He didn’t practice after playing the ISL [Indian  Super League]. But he’s a very good player. Some of the instances when he was on the ball, you could see his class,” said Bhattacharjee.
