Sankarlal Chakraborty resigns as Head Coach of Mohun Bagan

Sankarlal Chakraborty

Close on the heels of Aizawl FC coach Gift Raikhan’s resignation, Sankarlal Chakraborty has stepped down from his position as head coach of Mohun Bagan AC.

Mohun Bagan have suffered two back-to-back losses against NEROCA FC and Real Kashmir and are sixth on the table. Their title challenge in the league seems to have waned down with their form patchy and inconsistent this season.

At the post-match conference following the defeat against Real Kashmir, the coach had this to say:

“I don’t want to remain in my position of the head coach of this club. I have conveyed my decision to the club management and the players. I think Mohun Bagan need a fresh face to revive their campaign. I am taking all the responsibility for the poor performance. I wish the club all the success in future.”

“It’s not easy to find a new coach before our next match on January 9 (against Minerva Punjab). So I am ready to continue till the club find a new head coach.”

Chakraborty was promoted to Head Coach at Mohun Bagan in 2018 after serving under Subhash Bhowmick and Sanjoy Sen as assistant coach previously.

The Mohun Bagan management have accepted the resignation and an announcement regarding the new coach will be made soon.
