The squad are doing their bit to rope in new financial support for the club.
Several Parayag United SC players have taken the extraordinary step of aiding their club in the search of a new sponsor.
The disintegration of the Saradha Group, following the unravelling of a financial scam, has left United, along with one a host of Kolkata-based clubs, facing up to a uncertain future ahead of the upcoming I-League season.
It gets worse with the news that principal backers – the Prayag Group – are unlikely to subsidise them through the next campaign leaving officials at the Kanchenjunga Stadium scrapping to enlist new sponsorship.
But in an unprecedented display of solidarity players like Lalkamal Bhowmick, Sangram Mukherjee and Deepak Mondal have joined in the search by approaching corporate house in an attempt to obtain investment.
Bhowmick, who rejected an offer from Mohun Bagan to stay with United, stated it is the obligation of he and his team-mates to help the club through this crisis.
“Why shouldn’t we? We play for this club and when the club is in trouble, it is our duty to help them. United officials have excellent relations with the players,” he pointed out to the Times of India.
“Yes, I am trying, but have not been able to finalise any deal. I would be happy only when we get a sponsor. I want United SC to stay in the I-League at all cost.
“For me, money is not everything in life.”
