Mohun Bagan is the Champion of Kolkata League 2010

Mohun Bagan has become the champion of Kolkata League 2010 after defeating Chirag United 1-0 on Tuesday at the Yuva Bharati Krirangan, Salt Lake, Kolkata. Going into the game, Chirag had an edge over Mohun Bagan as they needed just one point from the match to clinch their first ever Kolkata League title.

On the other hand, Mohun Bagan had to win the game to defend their title in Kolkata League. Both sides were desperate to win the local league title as it was the only opportunity for both teams to finish the season with silverware.

Chirag United, despite having a good start to the season, fell agonizingly towards the end of I-League. Mohun Bagan has also gone through many ups and downs throughout the season, but their disappointed fans can now find some consolation in Kolkata league success. It has been Mohun Bagan’s third title in Kolkata league in a row.

Chirag United was very much in the I-League title contention till the first half of the season, but a series of poor performance left them out of the title race in I-League. They are now at the 7th place in the point table, 4 points behind the 5th placed Mohun Bagan, with just a match left in the season.
