East Bengal Coach Mridul Banerjee Injured On First Day In Training
Kolkata, April 19 (IANS) Just-appointed East Bengal coach Mridul Banerjee injured himself during his first training session on Wednesday, club officials have confirmed.
Banerjee, who won the Santosh Trophy with Bengal this year and is an A-licensed coach, took over the reins from Trevor Morgan on Tuesday after the latter was sacked for the club’s underwhelming displays in the ongoing I-League.
On his first day at a practice session with the red and gold brigade whose league winning aspirations have gone up in smoke after their fourth reversal in a row to DSK Shivajians, Banerjee twisted his ankle while running and has been taken for a scan.
“He twisted his ankle while running backwards during training and fell awkwardly. There was no body contact. He has been taken for a scan and we will know whether he can attend our next game by today evening,” an East Bengal official told IANS.
“He has been advised bed rest.”
East Bengal take on Minerva Punjab FC at home in an I-League encounter on April 23.
