There are many over thirty players in the East Bengal team like Luis Barreto, Soumik Dey, Dipak Mondal, Tulunga, Mehtab, Harmanjyot Singh Khabra and the two foreign players Belo and Ranti Martins. There are many matches which are going to be played in March and April month when the temperature will be really high and under that condition over thirty players will not be that much effective. so that will be a headache for the coach.

On the other hand East Bengal is in the talk with Dempo for the transfer of Narayan Das and Pranay Halder two young player who made great impressions on the East Bengal coach with their marvelous performances.

East Bengal is still hanging on the matter of signing marquee player. It seems they will wait for some time before signing to avoid the mistakes they have done with former Leo Bartos.
