Mohun Bagan offers sincere condolences on passing of Pungam Kannan. Kannan was one of the most skillful players of his generation and played in Mohun Bagan for seven years (1966, 1967, 1968, 1971, 1973, 1974 and 1975). He was nicknamed Asian Pele for his skills. He was the chief architect of Rovers cup wins in 1967 and 1971 when he scored the solitary goal on both the occasions in final helping Mariners to emerge as champions.
