Chennaiyin FC bid farewell to midfielder Francisco Fernandes!

Chennaiyin FC today confirmed the departure of midfielder Francisco Fernandes from the club. The 33-year-old Goan bids adieu as an Indian Super League title winner, having lifted the trophy with Chennaiyin FC in the 2017-18 season.

Francis made a total of 37 appearances in all competitions for Chennaiyin FC over the last two seasons, and was a versatile presence across midfield given his ability to fit seamlessly into any role. The former India international brought bags of experience to the table, and was a worthy option for Head Coach John Gregory to have at his disposal.

“Francis is a terrific professional and I have to admit that he’s always been one of my favourites! He was an absolute delight to work with over the two seasons he spent with us. Frankie, as I like to call him, was integral to our title triumph and his experience was extremely valuable to us both on and off the pitch, with the younger players especially learning a lot from him. We wish him and his family the very best for the future,” said the Chennaiyin gaffer in a heartfelt parting message to Francis.
