Former India and Mohun Bagan winger Pronab Ganguly, who is best remembered for his double strike against East Bengal in the club’s 1969 IFA Shield win, died after suffering a cardiac arrest here.

Ganguly, 75, was having breathing problems for the past few days and suffered a cardiac arrest at his Park Circus residence on Friday, according to sources in his former club.

Ganguly was a member of the Indian team in the Merdeka Cup in 1969.

After he switched over to Mohun Bagan from Howrah Union in 1967, Ganguly wowed the Kolkata Maidan with his deft dribbling skills and amazing ball control.
