A fever which, refrained striker Chidi Edeh from practicing in the ongoing preseason camp at Siliguri Stadium has taken a grim detour.Quickly acting upon it, team management took a decision to send him back to Koltata for recuperating. Also, this action mitigates other teammate not getting affected in the fever.
This is a definite worrying sign for Bagan as they play their first match of the season on the Kolkata Premier League on September 1 and that Chidi hardly got any practice ever since he joined the camp after coming from Nigeria.
But, what is not worrying and giving enough assurance to coach Stanley is the other Nigerian and the recruit from now defunct Mahindra United. Subair Muritala Ali along with old wily, Barreto attacked opponents’ defense several times in the practice match played yesterday.
The central defense in the form of Diamondstar and Rahul Kumar also gave assurance to coach.
There will be no practice on Sunday.
