5 ex-players Kerala Blasters could sign
India's club football season is almost over. Now, it is time to prepare for the next league and prepare tactics for a better display.
For Kerala Blasters, ISL season four was awfully bad. The Kerala side had some of the best names ever heard in the ISL. In spite of having them, Kerala Blasters endured a catastrophic campaign.
Akin to that of all other opponents, they will be planning to execute better next time with a more efficient squad.
Over the past four years, we have seen numerous foreign players plying their trade for Kerala Blasters.
Some managed to impress and became the fan favourites of Manjappada, while players like Dimitar Berbatov disappointed. As they look to rejuvenate their squad ahead of the next season, we take a look at five former players Kerala Blasters could sign.
#5 Cedric Hengbart
A part of ISL in the first three editions, the French defender featured for Kerala Blasters in the inaugural and third season. He plied his trade for Northeast United FC in the second season.
Known for his versatility, Cedric Hengbart was an inviolable presence at the back for Blasters.
The former Auxerre defender and Sandesh Jhingan stood at the heart of the defence in the first season and played a crucial part in their journey to the finals.
In the third season, Northern Ireland International, Aaron Hughes partnered Hengbart in the Central defence.
Similar to the first season, the defence was outstanding. He featured in 26 games for Kerala Blasters and scored a goal.
There were rumours suggesting Hengbart had offers from Jamshedpur FC, but the player didn't join.
Hengbart is currently free and Kerala Blasters could make a move for him. However, he's 37-year-old, but, one in the hand is worth two in the bushes, isn't?
