Despite being part of Odisha FC in the ongoing ISL season, Renthlei has not played a match yet, being on the bench for one ISL match and a couple of AFC Cup games. The official announcement was made by the Odisha-based club on X (formerly Twitter) on Saturday, January 27.

Renthlei marked his professional debut for the Indian Arrows in the team’s inaugural match of the 2019–20 season against Gokulam Kerala. He commenced the game and remained on the field until the 68th minute, despite the Indian Arrows facing a 0–1 defeat.

“Lalliansanga Renthlei joins Gokulam Kerala FC on loan till the end of the current season.”

Odisha FC currently holds the third position in the Indian Super League 2023-24 points table, accumulating 24 points from 12 matches. The team, known as the Kalinga Warriors, has secured seven victories, three draws, and two losses in the competition, boasting a goal difference of 10. They have scored 22 goals while conceding 12.

Odisha FC has made an impressive start to the tournament, currently holding a strong position in the Indian Super League. Remarkably, they remain undefeated in 15 consecutive matches, showcasing their determination to clinch the Super Cup championship once again. Sergio Lobera, the Spanish coach, is likely to strategize by fielding key foreign players like Ahmed Jahu and Murtaza Fale in the starting eleven.

However, a cloud of uncertainty hovers over the Odisha camp ahead of the final match. Brazilian star Diego Mauricio suffered a slight leg injury during practice the day before the match, raising concerns about his availability. The absence of this influential player could potentially alter the dynamics of the game.
