Kolkata: Mohun Bagan makes some significant changes in the team line up as they have released experienced midfielder Denson Devdas. Both party agreed for a mutual termination. The reason is that the current formation in which Coach Sankarlal Chakraborty is planning to play in the upcoming CFL 2017, does not suit the style with which Denson plays. The Green and Maroon brigade thus have completed the signings of Surchandra Singh from Churchill Brothers and Souvik Das from Minerva Punjab. Nigerian defender Kingsley too joined the training today. Meanwhile, the Mariners defeated Police AC by 6-1 in a pre-season game today.
