Mohun Bagan forward Aser Pierrick Dipanda Dicka today sustained an ankle injury in its 1-0 win over arch-rival East Bengal in the I-League derby at the Salt Lake stadium in Kolkata on Sunday.

“He’s injured his ankle and is being treated at the hospital. We are waiting for the reports,” Bagan head coach Sanjoy Sen said at the post-match news conference.

In a 51st minute move, Dicka failed to connect a cross by Ricky Lallawmawma inside the box and the Cameroonian was seen grimacing in pain.

The 28-year-old was attended to by the medical team on the sidelines as he failed to get up and was later stretchered off into an ambulance.

It’s not known whether he has fractured his ankle or not.

Bagan, who jumped to top three with four points from two matches after its first win of the season today, will host Churchill Brothers in its next match here on December 10.
