Sankar Roy

Sankar Roy has had a breakthrough season for Mohun Bagan in their title winning run with 14 appearances in the I-League and keeping 7 clean sheets while conceding just 9 goals in the process.

He was indeed the first choice ahead of seniors like Shilton Paul and Debjit Majumdar and was crucial in many matches through his vital saves that brought full points for Mohun Bagan in their run to win the title.

Mohammed Irshad

One of the finest Indian players in the 2019/20 I-League season, Mohammed Irshad has been a fixed starter for Gokulam Kerala FC with 13 starts to his name, marshaling the left centre-back position in a three man backline as Fernando Santiago liked to play.

Irshad was also instrumental in the Malabarians run to the Durand Cup title earlier in the season.

Keegan Pereira

The veteran left back is a well known face in Indian Football circuit and was part of the Jamshedpur FC setup in the 2019/20 season. We had previously reported about him being close to signing for the club and the club did finally annouce his arrival.

Keegan Pereira didn’t have a good outing for the ISL side in the 2019/20 season and made just 3 appearances before the club parted ways with the defender in January. He was without club ever since.

Girik Khosla

The 25 year old forward from Punjab FC is a speedy attacking player who likes to score stunners as described by his former team owner Mr. Ranjit Bajaj himself.
