#4 Luisma Villa

Signed as a replacement for outgoing winger Chencho Gyeltshen, the former Racing Santander and Alaves man just could not get enough time to show what he can do.

With just 5 games under his belt, the Spaniard failed to eke out any goal or an assist to his name. Marred with the presence of quality midfielders and wingers such as Dimas Delgado, Udanta Singh and Xisco Hernandez, Villa just could not make the cut to the first team.

The Spaniard's lack of game time and exposure makes him one of the few players who may not be in Carles Cuadrat's plan for the next season. His contract also being a short-one is expected to not be extended by the end of the season.

#3 Alex Barrera

Alex Barrera arrived late and was not productive enough in the short span.

Under similar circumstances as Luisma Villa, another Spanish Midfielder Alejando Barrera Garcia was signed up on a short-term deal by the Blues to replace an injured Erik Paartulu in February.

He featured in all the three games in the Play-offs with two starts. However, he failed to provide an assist or score himself in the 250 minutes he played.


He also played the entire game against Chennai City FC in the Super Cup in a lost cause. Despite, being a regular starter in the short period he donned the BFC Blue, Barrera may just not make the cut for the next season.

Erik Paartulu is still on a Bengaluru FC contract and may return to the Club after his injury making it further difficult to Barrera to retain his place.
