Kriralok Desk: Abahani Limited became the champion in the Independence Cup and Federation Cup. This time they are on a mission to win the treble in the Premier League. However, a different Abahani was seen in the two matches. The league started with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Muktijoddha in Tongi. In the second match, he went to Munshiganj on February 8 and stumbled against the newcomer Swadhinata Krira Sangha. Darielton’s last-minute goal somehow saved the score and drew 1-1. The Abahani footballers are blaming the field for such a faded performance.
This time in the Premier League, there was no less drama about the venue. Speaking of seven, after various dramas, the game is finally being played in Tongi and Munshiganj. BFF also has to face archery dispute over Tongi. This time the question arose about the remaining Munshiganj field.
Abahani captain Nabib Nawaz Jeevan said thet they played badly and there is no denying that. He was referring to the disappointing draw against independence. But the field is one of the reasons here. It is difficult to adapt to the uneven field in a hurry.
Both the Independence Cup and the Federation Cup were held at Kamalapur Stadium. Many footballers have been seriously injured due to bad turf. So the clubs have already demanded not to run the league there. The BFF league committee also accepted it. He thinks that playing in Kamalapur is better than playing in uneven field. But there must be new turf. Abahani’s opponent in the third round is Rahmatganj. The two teams will meet again next Sunday in Tongi after the Federation Cup final. Abahani wants to return to the old rhythm with this match.
