The Spaniard Aridane Santana had a great debut season for Odisha FC in the Indian Super League as he left his mark despite being ruled out due to a midseason injury.
Aridane Santana arrived at Odisha FC on loan in the summer from Spanish outfit Cultural Leonesa. Odisha’s Number 9 had his targets set when came here. He became the Messiah for the Juggernauts as he made sure his team gave their best in all the areas.
Aridane netted 9 goals and provided 2 assists for Odisha in their Debut season in 14 appearances.
But during this Coronavirus pandemic not all the clubs around the globe will be willing to break their bank on a single player and with Odisha FC struggling to meet the financial demands of the Spaniard. High profile players always come with high price tag for their services.
Aridane could be on his way to Mumbai as the City Football Group owned franchise remains a top option in India and with Sergio Lobera at helm we can expect Aridane to don the colours of Mumbai City FC next season. We have to wait and watch how this story unfolds. Indian Super League’s next season will be a treat for all the fans who are eagerly waiting.
