ISL 2021-22: Who are East Bengal’s foreign players for the forthcoming season?
SC East Bengal had a dissatisfactory campaign in the previous edition of the ISL (Indian Super League) as they finished on the ninth spot within the league table. To turn things around in the forthcoming ISL season, they have got a replacement coach in Manolo Dias and 6 foreign players who are going to be attempting their luck for the first time on Indian soil.
However, Tomislav Mrcela, the Australian center-back, has not appeared in a single match within the 2020-21 season as he had been plagued by injuries. His last appearance was against Sydney FC on August 20th, 2020.
They will begin their journey on November 21st against Jamshedpur FC, and on the next match on November 27th, they’re going to battle their eternal rivals ATK Mohun Bagan FC in the much-anticipated Kolkata Derby.
The following are the new international signings for East Bengal. The coach is very objective that they will help the team carry home the 2021-22 trophy.
