East Bengal coach is elated as Do Dong-Hyun is in great shape
East Bengal coach Biswajit Bhattacharya is elated with the condition of his Korean sensation in the Kolkata Premier League this season, Do Dong Yun. The Korean striker-midfielder returned to training after a month’s holiday on last Saturday and he joined the team’s training for the first time on Monday.
East Bengal will be going to Bangladesh to take part in an invitation tournament where Mohammedan Sporting and the other teams of Bangladesh will also participate. Commenting on Do Dong, team’s coach Biswajit Bhattacharya said, “He must have undergone serious training schedule in his home also. Otherwise he would not have been fully fit as he was before he left Kolkata for holidays.”
Dong, at the same time echoed, saying, “Yes, I used to go to gym every morning nearby my home to maintain the fitness level. I knew it would help me to keep on with the quality of football I had played in the Kolkata league. I want to be top scorer also in the forthcoming I League this season.”
Incidentally, with the absence of team’s two key defenders Arnab Mondol and Gurwinder Singh who are busy with their ISL engagement, East Bengal Club recruited a Nigerian stopper Richard on Monday. Richard, who represented Southern Samity last season, has also started training from Monday morning. He has been contracted for the next three months.
East Bengal coach however, is awaiting the arrival of Cornel Glen, the former World Cupper striker of Trinidad & Tobago who was the second highest goal scorer in the last I League after Ranty Martins. Glen is scheduled to arrive in Kolkata by the next week.
