East Bengal is ready to conquer the ISL from its first season. All the teams in ISL are much stronger than the ones in I-League. To compete with the East Bengal surely needed an upgradation in their team.
Earlier this month East Bengal’s director Mr. Bangur said, “We have very little time to prepare.” Keeping this in mind East Bengal has already recruited Liverpool Legend Robbie Fowler as their head coach.
They have also signed some talented Young Indian players like Lalramchullova, Mohammed Rafique, C.K.Vineeth, Balwant Singh, Cavin Lobo, Eugeneson Lyngdoh, Jeje, and many more.
East Bengal is now going for some talented foreigners. Yesterday they confirmed three more signings. One is Anthony Pilkington and the other one is Aaron Joshua Amadi-Holloway. Ville Matti Steinmann is the newest addition to the squad.
Anthony Pilkington has joined East Bengal from Wigan Athletic. The 32-year-old winger is a highly experienced attacker. He has played in some big clubs England like Huddersfield Town, Norwich City, Cardiff City etc. He was a part of Manchester United’s Youth Academy in his youth career. The Irish Winger has also represented his country 9 times in his career as well.
Aaron Joshua Amadi-Holloway has signed for the ‘Red and Gold’ from A-League side Brisbane Roar.
Ville Matti Steinmann is the newest addition to the team. The 25-year-old German midfielder has played for his home team Hamburgers SV in Bundesliga.
East Bengal is making them ready to maintain their legacy in the new league. Their head coach Robbie Fowler said, “You need to earn the Red and Gold stripes. Hence, no Red and Gold color in the practice kits. Only matchday kits will have them.”
Former Liverpool legend knows what legacy means to a club and fans of SC East Bengal and he will surely try to give them the rewards with this new squad.
