There was a lot of buzz around young India winger Lallianzuala Chhangte, who plays for Delhi Dynamos in the Indian Super League, going for a trial with Norwegian side Viking FK in Stavanger.
But his club side, Delhi Dynamos were not properly consulted and they then internally had to agree to the opportunity of Chhangte going to Norway.
The Delhi Dynamos in a statement said:
After careful consideration, Delhi Dynamos FC has agreed to send Lallianzuala Chhangte for trials at Viking FK during our February break.
This will be the first time a European club has taken a Delhi Dynamos player for trial. While the club is disappointed by the way the initial news was mishandled before an agreement can be made, the club wants what’s best for Chhangte and Indian football as a whole.
The trial at the Stavanger-based club and eight-time league champions is arranged by Krish Roy, Director Business Development & International Relations, German Football Academy (GFA).
The 21-year-old Mizo winger, currently playing for Delhi Dynamos FC in the Indian Super League (ISL), is expected to fly to Norway sometime in February 2019. Chhangte will join the first team squad in Stavanger for the trials under the supervision of head coach Bjarne Berntsen and his coaching staff.
