ISL: Five transfers that can change Mumbai City FC's fortunes
Mumbai City FC need a shot in the arm and these players could be the ones who push them to greater things next season in the ISL.
The Indian Super League has not been kind to the Maharashtra-based club. They finished second last in the inaugural season and conceded the most number of goals in the process. The second season was a bit better but it was nothing to boast about.
They finished sixth, scored the least and conceded the second most goals in another dismal campaign. Indian captain Suni Chhetri scored 7 of their 16 goals last campaign with other forwards failing miserably. We take a look at five players who can help Mumbai City FC in reaching the knockout stages for the first time in the competition's history:
1) Miroslav Klose (Germany)
Having scored only 16 goals last season and with talisman Sunil Chhetri most likely not available due to commitments with Bengaluru FC, the Mumbai team are in desperate need of a striker. Who better to buy than the veteran German forward Miroslav Klose?
He is Germany’s all-time top goalscorer as well as the record scorer in the FIFA World Cup. Even in his 30s, Klose is dispatching a goal every 170 minutes. With his shooting abilities, Klose is a nightmare for any goalkeeper.
He is the ideal centre-forward and the makes the team play around him with perfection. With 268 goals in 665 games for club and country, Miroslav Klose has all the tools in his bag to lift Mumbai City FC into the top.
