Mohun Bagan release Eric Muranda, rope in Chizoba

The Mariners relieved themselves of the services of under-performing Kenyan and announced his replacement as well...
After a number of pale displays, Mohun Bagan have finally parted ways with their Kenyan forward Eric Harrison Muranda and roped in Chizoba Christopher.

Christopher is a well-known face in the Kolkata Maidan and has plied his trade for teams like Kalighat MS and Mohammedan Sporting in the past.

The new recruit of the club will join the practice sessions under the tutelage of coach Karim Bencherifa at the Mohun Bagan ground on Wednesday morning.

The Mariners are languishing in the 11th spot in the I-League and have struggled to perform this term with their skipper Odafa Okolie not in prime fitness. The fact that the club and the coach have fielded the Nigerian despite him sporting a visible belly only highlights the pressure they find themselves in and that the team cannot perform without his presence.
