I-League 2017-18: Mohun Bagan to release Haitian winger Sony Norde

Sony Norde Mohun Bagan NEROCA FC I-League 2017/2018
The Haitian winger will be released by Mohun Bagan in the next few days...

Mohun Bagan is all set to terminate the contract with Sony Norde and the winger will not feature against East Bengal in the upcoming Kolkata Derby.  

The Bagan skipper got injured in his right knee against Churchill Brothers and had to be stretchered off the field. He has featured only once since then which was against NEROCA on December 19th, 2017.

When Norde had consulted orthopaedic surgeon Dr Anant Joshi in Mumbai about his injury, it was suggested that he need not go under the knife and through rehabilitation, he could get back to prime fitness.

But things have turned for the worse and it now seems that the winger must get his right meniscus operated. This means that he will be out of action for at least six-to-eight weeks. 

Goal had earlier revealed that the Kolkata giants are in advance talks with Ethiopian striker Fikru Teferra and Norde's imminent departure will only hasten the process. 

The Haitian international has won all major domestic trophies, namely the I-League in 2014 and the Federation Cup in 2015, with Mohun Bagan.
