Phalguni Singh will play for Sreenidhi Deccan ahead of New Season

Phalguni Singh joins Sreenidhi Deccan FC ahead of the New edition of the Hero I-League. The newcomers to the Indian Second-Tier Tournament have welcomed another talented prospect to their ranks.

On the transfer market, Sreenidhi Deccan was fairly busy. Before its first campaign in the I-League the club cobbled together a very interesting team of players. The contest will begin in Kolkata at the end of 2021, as per the restrictive COVID-19 regulations. The club based in Visakhapatnam released a Statement saying that Konsam Phalguni Singh will join during the next season, commencing 2021-22. 

The centerfield represented the TRAU FC last season and has been a vital asset on the team. He was also their skipper and even had a huge impact on many of his endeavours. Of interest, there have been speculations that ATK Mohun Bagan was supposed to be his next target, but the transfer didn’t take place. His new employers hope Phalguni can find greatness in the following season at a high level.

Phalguni Singh and his experience in the I-League

The Manipur native began his career with North Imphal Sporting Association in the Manipur State League. In July of this year, he inked with TRAU FC. In the I-League he played 21 matches and in the Second Division League with 8 matches. Phalguni Singh also scored four goals and two assists to his name.

Twice in the previous Durand Cup, the 26-year-old has also a clear idea of Indian football as well as being a trustworthy centrepiece player. He has been around for more than 3,000 minutes and only gets better when the player approaches his peak. His season last year was quite productive and he had been on the season team.

In the choosing of players that are ambitious to progress or have good I-League experience, SDFC were also highly intelligent. This leads to a nice mix and a healthy team. Over the next season of the I-League, the newcomers could be the spectacular deal.

SDFC had assembled a great squad. And also will indeed be a handful of them under Fernando Santiago Varela, the ex-Gokulam Kerala head coach. Players like Phalguni Singh will strive to influence the club and unify their aspirations. Other famous members are Dinesh Singh, Ubaid CK, Shahbaaz Khan and Suraj Rawat. The competitors will not know the playing style and attitude of this squad, which could lead to surprises and a number of upheavals.
