Though already known for a while, only today Indian Super League franchise Mumbai City FC officially announced on its social media accounts that India captain and striker Sunil Chhetri would be rejoining them for the third edition of the ISL.
Mumbai City had signed Sunil Chhetri last season at the ISL-2 auction and draft for Rs. 1.2 crores, making him the most expensive Indian player at the auctions.
For Sunil Chhetri the second ISL was his inaugural campaign in the competition as his I-League club Bengaluru FC had not released its players in 2014 and Sunil had a good competition scoring seven goals in 11 matches for Mumbai City FC despite the club not reaching the semifinals.
Now Sunil Chhetri returns to Mumbai City FC with club and player both aiming to at least reach the semifinals in the upcoming ISL-3.
India striker Sunil Chhetri, the nation’s regular captain, has been a consistent performer in the Indian club football scene besides the national team.
