''Mohun Bagan-Sail football academy then came to the rescue and offered its coach Jahar Das to the club on lien basis. At the same time an assurance was given that Sujit Chakroborty would be appointed as coach of Mohun Bagan-SAIL Football Academy,'' he said.
''But unfortunately, the promise was not fulfilled and our academy is reeling under trouble owing to the absence of an efficient coach.
Under the circumstances, we find no way out but to withdraw our lien agreement and reinstate Mr Jahar Das as the coach of our Academy,'' he added.
