Delhi Dynamos sign goalkeeper Poirei, midfielder Milan
New Delhi, July 18 (IANS) Delhi Dynamos on Monday announced the signing of goalkeeper Soram Poirei and central midfielder Milan Singh for the forthcoming edition of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) football tournament.
Milan has come on loan from DSK Shivajians although he has added to his reputation by turning out for North East United in ISL's opening edition. Porei has been the stubborn custodian for newly promoted Aizwal FC.
"I am very pleased to have Soram and Milan on my team. These two players are really talented and i look forward to working with them," Dynamos' new chief coach Gianluca Zambrotta said.
"Their names were discussed over the last couple of days among all of us, including club president Prashant Agarwal and the backroom staff. We believe that they fit perfectly in our plan for the upcoming season."
Milan started his senior career in 2010 with the Pailan Arrows where he played for three years before moving to Shillong Lajong for another three-year stint. He was then signed up by NEUFC first, and then by DSK Shivajians. He has scored 10 goals in his professional career and has also turned up for the India Under-23 side for six times.
"I have played only one season in the league and have a very strong desire to prove myself in the ISL. I am very excited to have joined DDFC and feel that I belong to this city. I might be from Manipur but my heart beats for Delhi as a number of people from the North-East live here and I believe they will come out in full support for me and my team," said an elated Milan who just turned 24 this May.
Milan will be joined by his childhood friend Porei, 23, who made his professional debut with Pune FC. He played with them for two years before joining Shillong Lajong FC.
He then had a one-year run with Pailan Arrows. He went on to join Bengaluru FC on loan for two years before donning Aizawl FC colours during the recently-concluded season of the I-League.
