Adding trouble to the already troubled Mohun Bagan, its president Swapan Sadhan Bose resigned from his post. Addressing a letter to the general secretary Anjan Mitra, he wrote- "With every passing day, my health is deteriorating further and I think with this condition I am not doing justice to the chair." Bagan have have virtually lost their 'battle' to be inducted in ISL.
Adamant on their three-point demand including the Rs 15 crore franchisee fee waiver, Mohun Bagan and East Bengal were not included in the ISL which named Bengaluru and Jamshedpur as two new franchisees for the upcoming season. In such a scenario, the two premier fan-based clubs of India are all set to compete in the I-League which will run alongside ISL but with lesser prominence, reducing it to a virtually second division tournament.
