Indian Super League club FC Goa has retained midfielder Pratesh Shirodkar.
ISL club FC Goa has announced today (Monday) that home-grown midfielder Pratesh Shirodkar will stay with the team for the third year running. Shirokar had joined FC Goa on a move from Mumbai City FC in 2016.
The 29-year-old brings a wealth of experience to the Goan outfit and adds plenty of steel to an already powerful midfield comprising the likes of Edu Bedia, Ahmed Jahouh and Lenny Rodrigues, said a media release from the club.
“I am very happy to sign another contract with FC Goa and really looking forward to the new season,” said Shirodkar. “I believe we have a very strong team this year and I am extremely excited to be a part of it,” he added.
The Calangute-born midfielder began his youth career at the SESA Football Academy before signing a professional contract with Sporting Clube de Goa in 2012.
In 2015, Mumbai City FC brought him into their squad where he went on to make seven appearances before returning to Goa to represent the FC Goa the following season.
