Defending I-League champions Aizawl FC have secured the signing of former India international Shylo Malsawmtluanga. 

Popularly known as 'Mama', the 32-year-old winger started his career with East Bengal in 2002. He also played for clubs like Mohun Bagan, Salgoacar, Delhi Dynamos etc and have gone on to represent India thrice. 

He is often referred to as the 'Godfather of Mizo footballers' due to him being one of, if not the biggest name to emerge as a prominent professional footballer from the north-east Indian state of Mizoram.

With Aizawl FC's core players leaving the team seeking greener pastures, Mama's arrival will certainly be a big boost for the Mizo outfit.
