Kulothungan to lead

Chennai: Mohun Bagan midfielder Kalia Kulothungan will captain the Tamil Nadu team in the Santosh Trophy National Football Championship, which starts on Sunday. The TFA (Tamilnadu Football Association) released a list of 22 players on Thursday. This will be further pruned to the final 20-member squad on Saturday.

Dempo goalkeeper V.P. Sathish, who has been picked among the 22, is one of only two keepers. As Dempo is currently playing in the AFC Cup, Sathish is due to join the squad only on May 28, the day of Tamil Nadu’s third match, leaving the team with just one goalkeeper till then. “It’s a risk I am prepared to take,” said coach P. Thulasi. “Sathish is a very important player for us and he has assured me that he will be here by the 28th.”

The squad: Goalkeepers: V.P. Sathish (Dempo), A.C. Nidhinlal (Indian Bank); Defenders: M. Parthiban (Indian Bank), N. Kali Alaudin, D. Ravanan (both Mahindra United), N. Mohanraj (Mohun Bagan), V. Prem (Mohamedan Sporting), K. Sathish (Nethaji), R. Naveen (Nilgiris); Midfielders: K. Kulothungan (captain - Mohun Bagan), F. Jegan (vice-captain), S. Suresh Kumar (both ICF), A. Jestes Antony, R. Rajmohan (both AGORC), S. Fredy, Bengkok Nameirakpam (both Indian Bank), M. Pradeep (Mumbai FC); Forwards: P. Muthu (AGORC), P.C. Riju (MSU), M. Ramesh (Customs), M. Elamurugan (Indian Bank), L. Surya Kumar (Arrows); Coach: P. Thulasi; Manager: A.S.K. Rajendran. — Sports Reporter
