East Bengal forward, Dudu Omagbemi, was left disappointed by his club's fans, who allegedly made racist comments towards the player. 

​East Bengal advanced to the semi-finals of the Hero Indian Super Cup after getting the better of Aizawl FC 1-0 at Kalinga Stadium. It was indeed a hard-fought victory for the Red and Golds, where Dudu, in particular, had a horrendous game. The fans grew restless as the match progressed and apparently made some racist comments towards the player. 

"The team has done me no harm. I am just not happy with the fans and how they treat me," expressed Dudu, as quoted by Goal

"Well do I need to still show myself (of what I am capable of)? No, I don’t need to entertain idiots who have no respect for other people. Now the whole world has come to know who they are and what kind of people they are. My friends from Norway told that they are rude and ingrates," blasted Dudu.

There were rumours that the player could sit out the semi-final, but Dudu insisted he's ready to feature. 

"I am travelling with the team. Now it is up to the coaches (to select me or not)," he added. 

East Bengal acquired the 32-year-old, as Wilis Plaza was booted after a series of bad performances. And they need the Nigerian striker at his sharpest to get the better of FC Goa in the semi-finals.
