Mr. Danish Iqbal on Saturday formally took charge as the General Secretary of Mohammedan Sporting Club.
Mr. Danish was elected as the Interim General Secretary back in February. However after achieving extraordinary success as an administrator in a short amount of time the Executive Committee unanimously decided to make the post permanent.
Under Mr. Danish’s tenure Mohammedan Sporting Club did not only survive in the Hero I-League for the very first time but also achieved their best position ever when they finished at sixth place.
“I am honoured to be associated with Mohammedan Sporting Club and would like to thank the Executive Committee for considering me for this post. There was a time when Mohammedan Sporting Club set the benchmark in Indian Football and we will leave no stones unturned to take Mohammedan Sporting Club where it belongs,” said Mr. Danish.
Mr. Danish believes in a city like Kolkata where football is like a religion and every other kid aspires to be the next Sunil Chhetri or Bhaichung Bhutia with support from all corners of the society, specially media, Mohammedan Sporting Club will soon be the powerhouse of Indian football.
