Indian Super League (ISL) club Delhi Dynamos have announced the signing of Slovenian midfielder Rene Mihelic on a one-year contract.
Mehelic made his ISL debut last year joining Chennaiyin FC on a free transfer after his contract with Latvian club Riga expired.
Rene played a pivotal role in the title winning campaign of Chennaiyin FC in 2017-18 season as he notched up two goals and four assists in his 14 appearances with the club.
“I want to thank Dynamos and coach Gombau for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I’ve played against them in the past and this is a team that is determined and hard to break so I am excited to have joined a fantastic group of players and staff,” Mihelic said.
Delhi Dynamos Head Coach Josep Gombau added, “Mihelic is a player we had identified from the start because he offers a lot both from dead ball situations and from open play. His creativity from the midfield will add extra quality for us when going forward. He is a motivated player who wants to build on his past success.”
A graduate of the youth academy of NK Maribor, Mihelic at the age of 19 became the youngest player to feature for Slovenia at the international level.
After leaving Maribor in 2010, Mihelic spent three seasons with Portuguese top tier side Nacional and in that period, he also had a loan spell with Bulgarian giants Levski Sofia. The midfielder has also featured for Hungarian giants Debrecen and Israeli outfit Hapoel Ra’anana.
