East Bengal sign Aucho Khalid

Ugandan midfielder Aucho Khalid came to prominence with an overhead kick goal in a win over Botswana in one of the Qualifying games for the 2017 African Cup of Nations. Aucho Khalid soon started to train with the national team and was seen as the next best midfielder to come from Uganda. The I-League Bengal team were quick to sign the Ugandan midfielder Aucho Khalid and boost their squad for the Super Cup 2018 India.

Aucho Khalid’s signing confirmed by East Bengal

Ronnie Santos, Khalid’s agent confirmed last night that Aucho will have to travel to India and will need to miss few of the senior team’s training sessions in order to complete the necessary documentation before he officially becomes an East Bengal player ahead of the Hero Super Cup India. Aucho will wear the jersey number 5 for the Bengal team for the upcoming Super Cup 2018 India.

Revamping plans for Super Cup 2018 India

One of the perennial clubs of Indian football, East Bengal are still hurting from the manner they surrendered the I-League title to Minerva Punjab and how they finished fourth in the I-League standings. The fact that Mohun Bagan finished one place above EB in the I-League table is also a painful feeling for the Bengal side’s fans.

However, the Bengal side is determined to put their I-League failures behind them and have a successful outing in the Super Cup 2018, also known as the Hero Super Cup India with signing the Ugandan midfielder Aucho is just the first step in the right direction for the I-League side East Bengal.
