Delhi Dynamos have taken a direct shot at the Indian FA after receiving another walkover

Indian Super League (ISL) side Delhi Dynamos took a dig at All India Football Federation (AIFF) and all parties involved in the organising of the competition on Saturday after they received a walkover in their Super Cup 2019 quarterfinal clash against East Bengal.

This was the second time Delhi Dynamos travelled all the way to Bhubaneswar for their match only to receive a walkover because an I-League side did not turn up for the game.

Delhi Dynamos were scheduled to play a qualifying game on March 16 against Gokulam Kerala. Delhi had taken the field but due to the I-League clubs’ boycott of the tournament, the Kerala club did not turn up.

On Saturday, after Delhi got a walkover yet again, the team management vented out their frustration on the organisers in a tweet released by the official Twitter handle of the club.

All I-League clubs had initially decided to boycott the competition in solidarity. Minerva Punjab, Aizawl FC and Gokulam Kerala FC did not travel for their qualification matches.

For the round of 16 matches, Chennai City FC and Real Kashmir came out of the alliance and decided to take part in the tournament even though they were part of the rebel group.

Kolkata giants East Bengal, Mohun Bagan, NEROCA FC and Churchill Brothers are the four I-League clubs who stood firm on their stand and decided not to participate in the Super Cup 2019.
