Biography

 

Arnab Mondal started playing football at the tender age of 8 and joined the Mohammedan Sporting youth set up for three seasons before making it to the I-League with Prayag United. Two seasons with the purple brigade paved the way for the tough and uncompromising stopper back’s call-up to the India under-23 team.

 

He impressed against Qatar in the 2012 Olympic qualifiers which prompted coach Desmond Bulpin to reportedly quip, “Keep an eye on this guy. He is one who will supersede all.

 

” Mondal joined East Bengal two seasons ago and in the continued absence of their burly import Uga Opkara due to injury, he became one of the mainstays of the red & gold defence and also started in East Bengal’s Federation Cup triumph in 2012.

 

His performances were rewarded with a place in the senior team. The Kolkata lad is currently one of the regulars on the India team sheet.
