Sarthak Golui and central midfielder Sourav Das joined SC East Bengal on Monday. The club announced the signing of two players from Mumbai City FC for the remainder of the seventh season of the Indian Super League (ISL).
Sarthak played four matches for Mumbai City FC this season, topping the league table after 14 matches. He is one of the best defenders for Mumbai City FC in last year’s ISL, registering 113 clearances and 46 tackles, while also being on the scoresheet once.
SC East Bengal head coach and Liverpool veteran Robbie Fowler said these players have the potential to take the team to a new level. Fowler said in a statement, “They are both great players. We’ve probably seen both for a while. Both are good players that can potentially take us to a new level.”
On joining the club, Sarthak said, “” I am very excited to join SC East Bengal. Being from West Bengal, donating red and golden colors is always a dream. I can’t wait to take the field for SC East Bengal and give my best. I am sure I will learn a lot from a veteran like Robbie Fowler and the entire coaching staff. ”
