Kings rope in Tariq Kazi

Bashundhara Kings roped in youngster Tariq Kazi, the Non-resident Bangladeshi whose tales have been making the rounds in recent times. He joined Bashundhara Kings and will replace injured national booter Masuk Miah Zony.

Bashundhara Kings, Saif Sporting Club Ltd, Rahmatganj Muslim Friends Society completed their Players Registration for the upcoming season of Bangladesh Premier League and other top fixtures on Sunday.

The ongoing transfer window started October 1 and will go on till November 20.

Reigning champions of Bangladesh Premier League Bashundhara Kings has assembled a formidable squad for the upcoming season as they eye to bring in some good result from AFC Cup where they will be representing Bangladesh. They have retained most of their key domestic players and also added some of the best players from other clubs.

Bashundhara Kings President Imrul Hassan welcomed the new recruits to the club. He also reiterated his vision for establishing Bashundhara Kings as footballing powerhouse of Asia.

“Many people ask us what is the goal of our clubs? To put it in one sentence, our goal is to reach the furthest success in the realm of football. In the process, we want to conquer everything which comes in our way. Whether it is AFC Cup or something beyond that, we hope to clinch all those titles,” said Imrul Hassan.

“We want to represent Bangladesh in the international football map. Those who disregard Bangladesh’s football potential now, will be forced to concede their mistake of demurring Bangladesh the rightful place in international football,” added Hassan.

“I want to thank the three players joining us as they accepted our offer. Getting them on board is part of our plan to form a formidable squad to charge ahead to our goals,” told Bashundhara Kings President.

Meanwhile, Saif Sporting Club retained Bangladesh skipper Jamal Bhuiyan while they brought in Emery Bayisenge from Rwanda, Fayia Kobba from Sierra Leone, Jahongir Ergashev from Tajikistan and Kafsut Taiusm to crowd their foreign pool with quality booters.
