Sreenidhi Deccan FC have being investing a lot in their squad this window for the upcoming season. Rahul KP is their latest signing as he becomes the 7th attacking player signed by the Vizag based club. A left-winger with tremendous potential Sreenidhi Deccan FC have a very valuable asset in Rahul.

Rahul began his journey into football through Gokulam Kerala FC. He came up the ranks in the academy to steadily make him progress in to the reserves. His talent deserved a bigger stage and thus he made his debut into the first team. In the 2019/20 season, he made 2 appearances for the team in the I-League.

He made his debut in a 2-1 loss to Mohun Bagan. His second appearance was more fruitful as he assisted Marcus Joseph’s goal against East Bengal where they drew 1-1. He did not make it into the I-League squad last season but featured in the Kerala Premier League. The team went on to win the league before Rahul knew it was time to look out for more opportunities.

Prior to the 2021/22 season, the AIFF invited a few clubs to join the top-tier league directly. While other teams go through rounds of qualification, Sreenidhi Deccan will be a part of the I-League without playing a game against their future opponents. The club has taken the opportunity very seriously and have made a good number of interesting signing, like that of Rahul KP.

Rahul KP is a left winger by trade and will look to get the minutes he did not receive at Gokulam. He has been a part of a title winning squad and will be keen to add that extra experience to boost the team’s fortunes.
