Mumbai, July 27 (IANS) Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Mumbai City FC on Wednesday announced the signing of Argentine striker Gaston Sangoy and Uruguayan centre-back Walter Ibanez for the third edition of the football tournament later this year.

Sangoy, 31, has previously won the Cyprus Cup in 2009-10 and more recently, the Polish I Liga in 2015-16. Having represented some of the major clubs throughout his career including Sporting Gijon, Apollon and Boca Juniors to name a few, Sangoy has continually shown fortitude when it has come to his performance.

Be it in the toughest leagues and competitions such as the La Liga and the Europa League, Sangoy is now set to enthrall football fans in India.

Joining Sangoy, would be Uruguayan centre-back Ibanez, who has spent a major part of his career playing for the top divisions in South America. Ibanez has been the recipient of the Peru Copa Inca in 2014 and the Top Chilean League in 2014-15 and is looking forward to bringing home the cup for his new team Mumbai City this year.

Alexandre Guimaraes, head coach of Mumbai City FC, was happy to sign the two foreigners.

"Gaston is a proven striker and a goal getter. He is a great asset up front and will always keep the opposition on their toes. Walter is a winner and if you see over the last two seasons, he has had over 60 appearances," Guimaraes said.

"That is a testament to his skill that he is a permanent fixture in the team for his coach. I am looking forward to working with both of them and forming a winning team," the coach added.
