New Delhi: High flying Mohun Bagan have been bolstered with the return of Indian premier forward Jeje Lalpekhula.
The Indian Super League and SAFF Cup winner comes back to the side after confirming last week that he is happy to be joining back the Mohun Bagan side for this season in the I-League.

Mohun Bagan opened their account in the first game itself by beating promoted Aizawl FC 3-1 in Gameweek 1 of the I-League.
Coach Sanjoy Sen has asked Jeje to be mentally ready for the challenge against Salgaocar FC on Saturday.
Jeje is expected to play alongside fellow forward Cornell Glen. The Mizoram-born sensational Indian forward was in sublime form in both the ISL and SAFF Cup respectively.
Jeje's partnership with Stiven Mendoza for the Chennaiyin FC helped the southern giants to win the ISL title before his impact for India in both the semis and final helped India emerge victorious in the SAFF Cup.
The defending champions will hope that an in-form Jeje starts well for the side and helps them to register a crucial victory against Salgaocar on Saturday.
