ATK Mohun Bagan Clarification on ‘3 Stars’Insignia in Jersey and Latest ISL 2020 – 21 Squad

ATK Mohun Bagan fans have been expressing their discontentment on Social Media channels, regarding a promotional video featuring Sourav Ganguly, where it’s being said that ‘the club having 6 years illustrious history will fight in this year’s ISL for becoming champions. This has infuriated the loyal Mariners as it interprets the fact that this club is a whole new entity and refers to ATK’s tenure in Indian football rather than Mohun Bagan’s 131 years old legacy.

Also, presence of 3 stars on the left sleeve of the jersey that the team had been donning during their practice sessions in Goa is another reason of unhappiness for the fans.

Mariners believe the 3 Stars denote the number of times of ATK had won the ISL and an inscription ‘Champions 2019-20’ points out the fact that this is a new entity. However, the club management issued a statement on Sunday, addressing the sentimental concerns of the fans.
