Baichung Bhutia has decided to part ways with Mohun Bagan in retaliation to the club's decision to serve him a show cause letter recently for missing practice and an exhibition match in Jalpaiguri.
"I don't want to play for Mohun Bagan anymore," declared India's captain.
Bhutia, who reached Kolkata on Sunday night after taking part in a reality show, said the show cause letter was a publicity gimmick.
"It (the show cause) was a publicity gimmick. It could have been handled better. Anjan Mitra just needed to call me up," said Bhutia, who led Mohun Bagan this season.
The star striker said he has been asked to reconsider his decision but it's unlikely that he will.
"It's good for both of us to part ways. They are telling me to rethink, but, at the moment, I have only one stand. I don't have any motivation left in me to play for Mohun Bagan," he added.
