Ex-Captain of Mohun Bagan, Compton Dutta played for the club from 1975 to 1985. Under his Captaincy in 1980, Mohun Bagan won the Durand Cup and Federation Cup. He won Santosh Trophy for Bengal in 1982 as a captain. We had a chat with him few days back.
Mohun Bagan has been like a family and I am like a son who has gone to study and to get his qualifications. The son has to, one day, come back home again. I do believe that once again I will be back because I am part of the family. I think the people will be happy to have me back and will allow me to continue my story with Bagan. I am preparing myself for that. May be tomorrow, may be later, I will be back and then I have to be at my best.
I have to say about Mohun Bagan as my life evolved around that team first!
While looking back to India I can mention some names like Xaviur Pias, Akbar, Sudhir Karmakar, Bidesh Bose, Prasun da, Bablu da, even Mona da though he used to played for East Bengal.
