Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Jamshedpur FC have roped in defender PC Laldinpuia for three years ahead of the upcoming season of the soccer league.
The defender will now soon be joining the JFC squad for the pre-season camp.
After signing the deal, he said: “I am so glad to be here. Playing in the top league of India one day was my dream and it has finally come true. I thank the club and the head coach for trusting in my abilities.”
“I will give everything in training and on the pitch to help Jamshedpur FC fight for the coveted ISL trophy and bring a smile on the faces of all fans.” Dinpuia has been handed jersey number 4,” he added.
Meanwhile, Jamshedpur FC head coach Owen Coyle said he had a keen eye on Laldinpuia.
“We had been tracking Dinpuia’s development since last season itself and he just kept on impressing everyone. He will be a solid addition to the squad considering his versatility. He was rock solid with Aizawl and played across the back line in all positions. After watching him closely and having conversations with him, I was convinced that he would develop into a great player for us,” Coyle said.
Born in Mizoram, the defender started his career with Mizoram Premier League side Bethlehem Vengthlang before moving to Chhinga Veng.
Following some stunning performances in the Mizoram Premier League, Laldinpuia represent his state in the Santosh Trophy in 2018 and 2019.
Later in September 2020, he joined Aizawl FC.
