Bhubaneswar: Indian Super League side Odisha FC Wednesday announced the signing of 26-year-old left-back George D’Souza for the seventh season of ISL.
The defender has signed a two-year contract with the Bhubaneswar-based side.
Hailing from Goa, D’Souza started his career with SESA Football Academy before playing for Sporting Clube de Goa, impressing many in the Goa Pro League (GPL).
Speaking about the latest recruit, Club President Mr. Rohan Sharma said, “We are pleased to welcome George to the club. He appeared on our radar after scouts sang his praises in the GPL. He amassed some fantastic stats while in the GPL considering he was playing left-back.
