FC Goa have handed a new three-year contract extension to their first choice defender Saviour Gama. According to the new contract, the club will keep him until 2024.
The 24-year-old Goan full-back set out for the Gaurs in 21 league fixtures in ISL 2020-21 edition. He also bagged one goal in the tournament. His consistent performance in the backline helped FC Goa to secure their 4th consecutive playoffs appearance. Also, he had a huge role in the club’s 15 match unbeaten runs by the end of the season.
“Well, to be honest, this feels like home to me. I have felt at home not only because I am in Goa, but also because the club has helped me become the player I am today and has given me the respect that every player craves. The new contract means that there will be even more responsibilities on my shoulders and that’s something I am looking forward to fulfilling. I am living my dream.”– Saviour
