Mohun Bagan striker Cornell Glen slammed a portion of the club's fans for booing him when he was going through a short-term goal drought a week ago.

The former Trinidad and Tobago striker had started off well for the Mariners and had become a popular figure among the club's faithful for scoring the important equalizer in the club's 1-1 draw against arch-rivals East Bengal. The forward, however endured a four match goalless run recently and was booed from the stands during the club's last home match. Glen finally found his form back again in the opening encounter against Maldives sided Maziya as his brace helped the Mariners notch up a memorable 5-2 victory.

"7 goals in 10 matches and they still not satisfied lol. #BlessedMorning", he wrote on twitter on Friday morning. When a fan got into an argument into him, the striker stressed that the fans must also understand the game and hinted that there has not been enough supply of balls from the midfield.

"That's what happens when you have to much fans that don't know the game. But we still risk everything for them" - he wrote. "You need the ball to score goals," he further added.
