Gokulam Kerala FC have signed Goan left-winger Vincy Barreto. The 21-year-old winger has played for the FC Goa reserve and youth teams.
The player, who had represented them in the Second Division League and I-League Under-20 tournament, is the latest addition to Gokulam Kerala FC’s senior squad.
The winger was invited for trials and was able to impress Gokulam Kerala FC’s Italian head coach Vincenzo Alberto Annese during the pre-season camp held at Kozhikode. Vincy has travelled to Kolkata as part of the Gokulam Kerala FC squad.
“I am really honoured by the interest shown by the club to sign me. I will do my best and will help the club win more trophies. Our focus is now on IFA Shield and we will give our 100 percent in the tournament,” said Vincy Barreto.
“Vincy is a very young and skilled player. He has shown impressive skill and pace in the pre-season training. I believe he would be an asset to the club,” said Vincenzo Alberto Annese.
“Our philosophy is to promote young talents and we are happy that Vincy was able to impress the head coach during the pre-season camp at EMS Stadium. We wish all the best for his future,” said Gokulam Kerala FC chairman Gokulam Gopalan.
