ISL 2017: Top 5 players likely to win the Golden Glove this season
Just ten days remain for India's footballing extravaganza -- the Indian Super League (ISL) to kick off and this time around, two more teams have been included in the tournament, which increases the stakes for the sides and their fans.
All the ten teams have spent big to build their squads for the new season and one most sought-after players have been the goalkeepers. Guarding the goalpost is a job as important as scoring a goal. The goalkeeper is the starting point of most of the attacking play and hence, is arguably the most important member of the team.
The teams have all been careful in selecting their goalkeepers and this could be seen from the fact that the Delhi Dynamos FC selected a goalkeeper as their first pick at the draft.
Now, let us see some of the top contenders for the Golden Glove award in this year's edition!
#5 Subhasish Roy Chowdhury - Kerala Blasters
Subhasish Roy Chowdhury, the 31-year-old Indian keeper, was a part of the ATK team which won the ISL in its inaugural season. He was their main man in goal during the campaign.
The experienced keeper played for Delhi Dynamos, FC Goa and East Bengal before coming to the Kochi-based team. He brings a lot of experience with him and with a strong defence that features the likes of Sandesh Jhingan and Wes Brown in front of him, he will surely have an eye on the Golden Glove trophy.
