CONFIRMED: East Bengal Sign I-League Winning Defender Lalramchullova

Monday, 22 May 2017|Anubhav Roda

East Bengal have sealed the signature of highly rated I-League winning wing-back Lalramchullova for 2 seasons, Feverpitch.in can confirm. 

As learned from the sources, the versatile Aizawl FC defender has put pen to paper for the Kolkata giants East Bengal in a whopping deal worth over 70 lakhs spreading across two seasons. 

Lalramchullova, who can play both, as a right-back or a left-back was a key figure in Aizawl FC’s fairytale title triumph and was involved in a goal and an assist apiece. While his crucial goal came against Churchill Brothers where Aizawl FC were found trailing, his assist too helped Aizawl FC in clinching a crucial win.

Lalramchullova was one of the leading full-backs this season in the I-League, playing 1091 minutes in the season, and was one of the leading names in terms of crosses, tackles, and recovered balls in the opposition half. Having impressed one and all, Lalramchullova has definitely earned his way to one of India’s biggest and oldest clubs.

Lalramchullova would be seen playing the Calcutta Football League for the Red and Golds, followed by the I-League or the Indian Super League, depending on what stance the management takes on where they want to head. 

The young Mizoram defender started his career with FC Kulikawn before being signed by Mizoram Premier League side Luangmual. He then sealed a move to Aizawl FC in 2014 and helped them gain promotion to the top tier and eventually, win the I-League.
