Profile: Majeed BISHKAR, #0

The Iranian is still the yardstick for foreign imports in Indian football. Whenever a new player joins a club, coaches or former players comment whether he is as good as Majeed or not. He completely mesmerized the snobbish Kolkata critics. Playing primarily as a schemer or an attacking midfielder, Majeed was a player with sublime skills. His pace with the ball, dribbling skills and trickery was something unseen in Indian football. Most importantly he was a thinker – a player who could change a match with a perfectly played pass.

Baishkar was a member of the Iran team that played in 1978 World Cup. He came to India as a student of Aligarh Muslim University. One of his friends from University days – Jamshid Nasiri – would go on to form a deadly combo with him for both East Bengal and Mohammedan Sporting. Majeed stayed in East Bengal for just one season. Later he moved on to Mohammedan, playing there for two seasons. Overall he played just three seasons in Kolkata. Yet, he is regarded as the best foreigner to play football for both of these heavy weight clubs.

Troubles in his homeland after the Iranian Revolution eventually took a toll on Majeed, as he got addicted to narcotics. After a few unsuccessful stints in other parts of India, he returned to his homeland. His bohemian lifestyle added to the cult status that Majeed Bishkar eventually attained.
