On October 25, former Indian batter Sourav Ganguly resigned from his position as BCCI’s president and promised to return to the Mohun Bagan Club as a director. I spent more than nine years playing for Mohun Bagan Club in the past.
Ganguly left the board of directors of Sanjiv Goenka’s ISL franchise, ATK-Mohun Bagan, in October 2021. At the beginning of the Indian Super League in 2014, Ganguly teamed up with Atletico-Kolkata. Before collaborating with Mohun Bagan, the club changed its name to ATK.
I have a lot of recollections of the location. I’m pleased to see how this club has changed. I applaud them for making efforts to improve the amenities here. I’ll be back here soon as Director, he promised. After becoming the head of the BCCI three years prior, Sourav Ganguly resigned from his position as the club’s director to avoid any potential conflicts of interest.
Sourav came to the Mohun Bagan tent for a courtesy call on Tuesday. He held a meeting with the club secretary Debashish Dutta for a while before facing the reporters. Apart from Debashish, Bagan’s Football Secretary Swapan Banerjee and Cricket Secretary Mahesh Tekriwal were also present in this meeting with Sourav. After saying goodbye to BCCI, Sourav is returning to football administration.
Club secretary Debashish said, He will be seen as the director of Mohun Bagan in ISL.Sourav said today, I joined ATK from the beginning. Then Mohun Bagan joined ATK. I have seen many ISL matches. I came here today and saw that this tent has improved so much. Everything has changed a lot compared to three years ago. I heard The ground is of international standard. I will see it practice at Mohun Bagan today. But even if I can give advice on cricket, I am not qualified to give advice to footballers. There is an ISL derby on October 29.

Asked to name the four potential semi-finalists in the ongoing T20 World Cup, Sourav replied, This is just the beginning. There is still a lot to do. India played well against Pakistan.
