Odisha FC CEO Mr. Rohan Sharma is very happy with both the signing of Sahil Panwar and Sebastian.

“They are two of the most promising defenders in the country and add further depth and quality to the team,”– Mr. Raj Athwal.
Beginning of the Sebastian football journey
Thangmuansang started playing football at the age of 5. He later joined Pune city academy in 2014. After spending his youth in the academy he was loaned to Chennai City.
He made his competitive senior debut for the club in 2017 against Gokulam Kerela FC and played for the full 90 minutes. He later signed NEROCA in 2018 and Gokulam Kerela FC in 2019.
With a very disappointing performance of Odisha in the last year’s Indian Super League campaign, new talent might help it gain its spirit back.
Odisha FC is has been recruiting young Indian talent in their squad for the next season. Odisha has seen an overhaul of their foreign contingent and the new signings seem to be quite good. The signing of both the defenders shows that they are going to give a tough fight.
