Chirag ropes in Edmilson

KOLKATA: Chirag United SC drafted in Brazilian striker Edmilson Marques ahead of its I-League opener against Mohun Bagan on Monday.

United SC picked up Edmilson, who turned out for East Bengal earlier in the season, on loan after his former employer left him out of the squad owing to poor performance.

Edmilson is the third Brazilian in the side after defender Eduardo Coelho and forward Joshimar Da Silva. — Principal Correspondent
