FC Goa has signed Sikkimese defender Nirmal Chhetri from NorthEast United FC ahead of the coming edition of Indian Super League.
The full back started his senior career with Air India back in 2006 before playing for both Bengal giants, East Bengal and Mohun Bagan respectively. He scored three goals for Mohun Bagan, including one on his debut.
He was loaned out to Mohammedan SC in 2013. In 2014, ISL side Kerala Blasters sought the services of the defender who joined them and helped the team reach the final, wherein they lost against ATK. Chhetri then moved to North East United FC.
“The entire country noticed the brand of exciting football that FC Goa played last season and now I have the chance to be a part of it. Coach Sergio (Lobera) did wonders last season and I’m happy to be under his tutelage going forward,” Chhetri said about his new team.
“Nirmal is a player who will bring experience to this squad. He can play in any position across the back four and can assist in attack as well,” head coach Lobera said.
