FC Goa has signed Sikkimese defender Nirmal Chhetri from NorthEast United FC for the upcoming edition of Indian Super League.
Chhetri has been a veteran in the ISL since its inception, playing for Kerala Blasters FC and NorthEast United before signing with FC Goa.
The Sikkimese full-back started his senior career with Air India back in 2006 before playing for East Bengal and Mohun Bagan respectively. He scored three goals for Mohun Bagan, including one on his debut.
In 2014, Kerala Blasters sought the services of the defender who joined them and helped the team to reach the finals where they lost against ATK.
Chhetri then moved to NorthEast United FC where he played the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
“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.
