AIZAWL: Aizawl FC Central Fans Club has lodged an FIR against East Bengal coach Khalid Jamil in Aizawl Police Station for Public Defamation.
All these started at the Pre-Match Press Conference yesterday, where Khalid said that he did not left Aizawl FC, but Aizawl FC let him go.
Aizawl FC owner Robert Royte, on the contrary, has claimed that Khalid was offered an contract extension but the later decided not to sign the extension and moved to East Bengal for a better pay roll.
Khalid’s statement apparently did not go well with the Aizawl FC faithful, as the infuriated fans brought banners on the match day terming Khalid as ‘traitor’ and booed him throughout the match.
It’s important to note that not all the fans agreed to FIR and the banner.
After the game East Bengal team bus was also blocked by Aizawl FC fans and Khalid had to be escorted by police to post match press conference.
