KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting Club on Tuesday announced the signing of Nigerian defender Eze Kingsley in a press conference held at Club tent.
The 23-year-old who last played for Punjab FC in 2019/20 I-League has played for the likes of United Sports Club, Peerless SC, Aizawl FC and Mohun Bagan. Kingsley was part of the Aizawl FC team which won the I-League in 2016/17 season.
“The club’s history fascinates me. I also wanted a new experience. It will be an interesting experience for me. I’m not someone who looks for an easy ride,” Kingsley told mohammedansportingindia.com.
“Mohammedan have a great dream and I want to make it a reality. The club’s dream is to get promoted to the I-League and I hope to help them achieve this. We need to believe we can get promoted if we are to do it. We will give it our best shot,” he added.
Beside Kingsley, the Club has also extended the contracts of Priyant Singh, Tirthankar Sarkar, Hira Mondal, Sujit Sadhu, Shafiul Rahman, Firoj Ali, Sujoy Dutta and Arijit Singh.
Tirthankar says he’s happy and grateful for the extension of his contract. “All I can do to show gratitude and appreciation by continuing to work to the best of my ability. I want to give back to the club. Thank you to the officials.”
Priyant who joined Mohammedan in 2018 says: “Foremost I am emotional about it. I want to thank the General Secretary Sk. Wasim Akram and Football Secretary Dipendu Biswas for this opportunity. I want to thank everyone involved in seeing that I can still contribute to this immense institution.”
