East Bengal Sign Aizawl FC Winger Laldanmawia Ralte

Sunday, 9 July 2017|Abhranil Roy

East Bengal continues to bolster their squad with big names for the next season, with the latest inclusion being Aizawl FC's Laldanmawia Ralte who has been recruited on a 1-year deal.

The Kolkata giants have made strong statements with their signings this season, having bought in a number of players from I-League 2016/17 winners Aizawl FC.

Even Khalid Jamil, the coach and the architect of the club’s unlikely triumph, has been hired by the Red and Gold brigade for the next 2 years. Having already lapped up fullback Lalramchullova, left winger Brandon Vanlalremdika and veteran midfielder Al-Amna, they have now got their hands on Ralte, who made quite an impression on the viewers last season with his blazing runs down the right.

Despite playing as a right winger, he has an eye for goal and that was demonstrated by the 3 goals he scored for Aizawl FC in the league last season. He will undoubtedly add depth and quality to the midfield for his new outfit and will relish the opportunity to work with his old team-mate Al-Amna and manager Jamil once again.

 With Willis Plaza retained and defender Carlyle Mitchell signed alongside midfielder Al-Amna, East Bengal has some very good overseas players in their ranks as well and will look to mount a serious challenge to the I-League title in the next campaign.
