CONFIRMED: Brandon And Amna Follows Chullova to East Bengal

Tuesday, 23 May 2017|Abhishek Mukherjee

Kolkata giants Kingfisher East Bengal have confirmed the signing of two key Aizawl FC players Brandon Vanlalremdika and Mahmoud Al Amna, in what might be termed as a busy recruitment drive for the club.

Both the players played a pivotal role in Aizwal FC's success this season and would be a welcome addition to the Red And Gold Brigade. 

Brandon Vanlalremdika (23) was one of the breakout stars of this season's I-League, with 2 goals and 2 assists to his name. With an impressive passing accuracy of 72% and 1.1 key passes per game, Brandon would be a key cog for East Bengal in the upcoming Calcutta Football League. It has been learned that Brandon has penned a deal for 2 seasons.  

On the other hand, the 34-year old Syrian international Al Amna who was the main orchestrator in the center of the park for Aizawl has agreed to pen a short-term deal with East Bengal, which is set to expire after the Calcutta Football League. 

The Syrian managed to net 2 goals and assisted 3 in the recently concluded I-League, with a clinical passing accuracy of 78%. He will be a perfect replacement for the old workhorse Mehtab Hossain, who refused to extend his contract with East Bengal for the upcoming season.    

With the addition of these two Aizawl FC stars, East Bengal now have signed 3 Aizawl FC players in a span of 2 days, with Chullova being the first recruit. 

Apart from the former Aizawl FC duo, East Bengal have roped in Churchill Brothers' Surabuddin Mallick and Richard Costa.
