    Churchill should fire Alfred Fernandez and hire a young manager like Francisco Bruto da Costa.

    They will never fire him, he is a club loyalist who has been at the club for many years, he will simply move down to assistant coach, actual coach is Joseph Afusi.

    Goal can confirm that seven Minerva Punjab players were contacted by bookies on two different occasions. 

    Souvik Das and William Opoku Asiedu were the first two players who were contacted by the concerned parties. 

    “Two of my players came to me with screenshots of match-fixing offers of Rs. 30 lakhs. I reported it to AIFF integrity officer & also Asian Football Confederation (AFC), through their integrity app. I really hope these unscrupulous elements are not successful in getting through to other players and match officials,” tweeted Bajaj in early January.

    In the second incident, five more players were contacted in order to influence the result of an I-League match. 

    The players who were contacted are Abhishek Ambekar, Sukhdev Singh, Kassim Aidara, Rakshit Dagar and Chencho Gyeltshen.
