FC Goa confirmed the signing of the highly-rated Goan forward Devendra Murgaonkar in a 3-year deal at an undisclosed price. The 21-year-old young forward joins the ISL side from Salgaocar after the clubs agreed on.
Devendra has displayed an excellent performance in the Goa Pro League over the last couple of seasons. Now he got a chance to prove his worth in the top league of India and to come under the radar of the national selectors.
“This is something like a dream come true for me. I have been an FC Goa fan since the Club’s inception and now I get to wear the colors and get onto the field, taking on the best in India. So, you can say I am living my dream right now. I feel blessed to have this opportunity and I want to take advantage of this with both hands.”, Devendra said after joining FC Goa.
Devendra first came into the scene in the 2017/18 season. In the 2018/19 season, he was the top scorer with 20 goals in Goa Pro League [GPL]. He also scored 9 goals last season.
Ravi Puskur, FC Goa’s Director of Football said, “Devendra is a player who has consistently performed at the Goa Pro League and has racked up goals, season after season. He’s a clever player who drops to assist in the build-up and also finds himself smart pockets of space. We are confident that he will suit our style of football. We hope that his development will be accelerated by training, being surrounded by players from the first team, and by gaining minutes at the ISL level.”
ISL is going to start on 20th November in Goa. The home team will surely want to display a great performance this season and Devendra will surely want to impress everyone.
