New coach Josep Gombau was full of praise for his new striker, lauding his pace and finishing.

"Andrija is a very intelligent player who is quick and a good finisher. I have seen him play in the Australian league and he has performed consistently well both in the league and the continental cups as well. He has a great mentality and experience which will really help the side," Gombau told the Delhi Dynamos website.

The striker himself revealed his delight at signing for an ISL club, a league he believes is very popular.

"I am excited to have joined a new league and a new team in Delhi Dynamos. The popularity of ISL is for everyone to see and a lot of foreign players are here so I am no stranger to this competition. I want to give my best and hopefully, we will have a good season," Kaluderovic told the DDFC website.
