Few days back, Odisha FC announced the signing of Brazilian winger, Marcelinho for ISL 2020-21 season. The fans went ecstatic over this news. Now, they have once again surprised their fans as they have announced the signing of Australian wall, Jacob Tratt from Perth Glory.
Jacob Tratt has penned down an one-year deal for the ISL side. On this announcement, the fans went gaga over it. After adding some Samba to their style, they have now a got a defender who has the ability to turn up whenever there will be a quick counter from their oppositions.
At the same time, a player with a height of 6 ft. 3″ will also be a dangerous header from set-pieces. And when you have got a set-piece taker like Marcelinho, then having a player like Jacob Tratt as the emergency attacker is really going to be a delightful watch.
Jacob Tratt has also got a pretty good senior career record so far. In 97 appearances, he has got 5 vital goals for his teams in the Hyundai A-League.
Now, its time for him to show-up his defending skills for Odisha FC but this is actually going to be a challenging one since, playing as a defender in a tournament where clinical strikers like Sunil Chhetri, Roy Krishna, Ogbeche, Corominas, Valskis are among the fan favourites and this isn’t an easy job to execute.
