Bengaluru FC have signed Bruno Ramires for the 2021-22 season on a two-year deal. The 27-year-old midfielder joins from Portuguese Primeira Liga side Belenenses SAD.
As a result, Ramires becomes their fourth foreign signing after Prince Ibara, Yrondu Musavu-King and Alan Costa. The squad now consists of five foreigners. But, an Asian player needs to be registered for the upcoming Indian Super League 2021-22 season.
The defensive duo of Costa and Musavu-King looks solid. The club now would be happy about their three Brazilian signings.
Bruno Ramires to spice up the Samba revolution at Bengaluru FC
Bruno Ramires joined SAD from another Portuguese club CD Feirense. He also had stints at Brazillian clubs such as CSA, Ponte Preta, Vitoria and Cruzeiro as well as in Portuguese side Moreirense.
He made his professional debut with Cruzeiro in 2014 and the club won a domestic double including the Campeonato Brasileiro Serie A and Campeonato Mineiro. Fellow Brazilians Cleiton Silva and Alan Costa have adjusted well with their new head coach and Ramires would be keen on working alongside his countrymen.
After completing the transfer formalities, he said,
“My primary target is to fight for trophies with this club, because I know this team has a winning mentality. “
The Blues will now be preparing for their Durand Cup campaign which would begin in September. They would be facing their first match against arch-rivals Kerala Blasters in an anticipating Southern derby clash in Group C. They would also be facing Delhi FC and Indian Navy in their subsequent matches.
However, it was a frustrating performance in the AFC Cup finishing at third place in Group D comprising of ATK Mohun Bagan, Bashundhara Kings and Maziya SC.
