Pandita chooses Kerala Blasters over East Bengal FC and Chennaiyin FC:
To get Pandita’s signature, there was a long battle amongst several Hero Indian Super League clubs throughout the summer transfer window. Among them, East Bengal FC and Chennaiyin FC were the top opponents of Kerala Blasters FC. Both East Bengal FC and Chennaiyin FC were looking for an Indian striker, so they figured out Ishan Pandita.
Both clubs had done their best to convince Pandita to sign for them. But Pandita has chosen Kerala Blasters FC’s offer.
Kerala Blasters sign Ishan Pandita:
After a few weeks of battles with several ISL clubs, the Kerela Blasters finally won the race. They managed to get the signature of young striker Ishan Pandita.
Pandita will add solidity to Kerela’s squad and will be effective with his presence on the field. Ishan’s role for Kerala Blasters FC will be significant due to his prior experience playing in the ISL.
In Ivan Vukomanovic’s 4-4-2 formation, Ishan may pair up with Dimitrios Diamantakos in the front.
Ishan Pandita: Performance in Hero ISL:
The 25-year-old Indian striker spent his initial career in Spain. Later in 2020, Ishan switched to the Indian Super League and signed for FC Goa. In that season, under coach Juan Ferrando, Pandita was used mostly as a super-sub.
Playing for FC Goa, Ishan Pandita has scored four goals in 17 appearances. Besides, Ishan made an impact whenever he came onto the field. Next year, Ishan joined Jamshedpur FC under coach Owen Coyle. In Jamshedpur FC, he got more minutes than in FC Goa. However, Ishan scored six goals in 36 appearances but could not perform according to his ability.
