Noted businessman Swapan Sadhan (Tutu) Bose on Monday was named president of Mohun Bagan club, a position which lay vacant after eminent lawyer Gitanath Ganguly’s demise.

“The club lost its president Ganguly in December 2019 and subsequently the executive committee members in today’s meeting unanimously decided to select Swapan Sadhan Bose as the new president of the club,” the Mariners stated in a release.

Uttam Saha, previously ground secretary, will now be the treasurer, while Mahesh Tekriwal and Sandipan Banerjee were elected unopposed as ground secretary and hockey secretary respectively.

Mohun Bagan has made a landmark move announcing its merger with ATK from June, paving the way for the oldest football club of the country to compete in the top tier Indian Super League from next season.
