Chennaiyin FC has completed the signing of Monotosh Chakladar on a multi-year deal. The two-time champions endured a disappointing campaign as they finished in eighth place with just five wins to their name. This will be the third signing of the window for the Mariners and will also be Chakladar’s first Indian Super League contract after he captained Bengal in the Santosh Trophy last year.
“We are really happy to welcome Monotosh Chakladar to the Chennaiyin family. All of us at the club are aware of his leadership qualities and performances at the Santosh Trophy and we are excited to have him bring those qualities to the fold. I am certain he will fit in seamlessly into the team, and raise the overall level,” Chennaiyin FC owner Vita Dani said after completing the signing of Monotosh Chakladar.
“I’m very excited to play in the ISL for the first time and that too for two times champions, Chennaiyin FC. My only motive now is to work hard, get into the first team and win titles with this team,” Chakladar said.
Meanwhile, Odisha FC confirmed the return of defender Carlos Delgado after two years away from the club.
