CHANDIGARH footballer Sandesh Jhingan was among the five players signed by bottom-placed Rangdajied United on loan from IMG-Reliance,organisers of the much-anticipated IPL-style Indian Super League football tournament,with an aim to avoid relegation. The other players are Gouramangi Singh,Subrata Paul,Tomba Singh and Manandeep Singh.
Rangdajied United are currently place at the bottom of 13-team standings in I-League,having failed to win a single match from eight outings. They have drawn three,while losing five in the season so far.
Also,some more prominent I-League clubs are also in touch with IMG-R for similar loaning of players.
Following the move,the Shillong-based Rangdajied United club became the second outfit to break away from the Indian Professional Football Players Association.
“They will be registering the players either today or tomorrow and three of them would start practising with the team soon. Gouramangi and Paul will come back after their trials in Denmark on Thursday or Friday.”
