KOLKATA: Mohammedan Sporting Club are happy to announce the arrival of 23-year-old midfielder Malsawmzuala.
Starting his footballing journey with his local club, Chanmari FC in Mizoram, Malsawmzuala quickly climbed the ladder and impressed the scouts at Bengaluru FC. The youngster joined BFC in 2015 and instantly became a regular in the side.
Malsawmzuala made important contributions for the club in I-League and also in the AFC Cup. He made 15 appearances for the club and scored 1 goal; a 30-yard stunner against East Bengal in a crucial I-League encounter.
Malsawmzuala also has Indian Super League experience under his belt as the boy from Mizoram had joined Delhi Dynamos on loan in 2016. He made four appearances that season for the Dynamos and also scored a goal against FC Pune City. The youngster also had brief stints at ATK and Jamshedpur FC before joining Sudeva Delhi FC in September 2020.
Malsawmzuala has also represented India at the U-19 level and was previously included in the Indian senior team squad for the World Cup qualifiers.
Malsawmzuala is a defensive midfielder that excels in breaking up play and helping his side win back possession. He is also comfortable when on the ball and has an ability to test the opponents with his long-range shooting. The youngster will surely play a key role in the upcoming season for Mohammedan with his ability to destruct and dictate the game from the centre of the park.
“Malsawmzuala is a talent with huge potential. We are positive he will grow and improve by leaps and bounds at Mohammedan. He will be a quality addition to our squad in midfield. We are really excited to see him in action,” said Mohammedan General Secretary Mr. Danish Iqbal on the club’s latest acquisition.
