Ranjan Bhattacharya has joined Premier Division team Southern Samity for this season. He always tries to introduce a new bunch of potential footballers who prosper in the future. Going by the habits, he has already explored and recruited a few very promising footballers from the remotest places of Bengal along with a few who have experience playing in the I-League in recent times.

Opinion on Kolkata Premier League

Calcutta Premier League is going to take place without the participation of foreign footballers this year for the first time after more than four decades & Bhattacharya has welcomed it. He commented,

“In the early 80s, Kolkata football saw Majid, Jamshid, Khabaji followed by Chima Okorie, Christopher, Chibuzor. We were scared of facing them on the pitch psychologically. I can say from my own experience that while playing against Mohun Bagan in a Kolkata League match, my former teammate in Rajasthan Swapan Saha Roy was advising me not to tackle Chima. It was reality. But playing against those physically strong foreign footballers for almost the last 40 years, local footballers are not scared. So, it is the perfect time to play without foreign footballers.”

Ranjan Bhattacharya’s Focus on the New Generation

Bhattacharya, going by his habit again has already built up a side where unknown but potential young footballers are being nurtured. He said,

“Once again Bengal football can get quality strikers like Sishir Ghosh, Dipendu Biswas, and Asim Biswas which we did not have in recent years.”

He speculated saying,

“Krishna Hembram, Biswajit Murmu, Subrata Murmu are those few names who are to be watched in the upcoming Kolkata Premier League and they have the potential to replace the foreign strikers in the near future.”
