The Indian players of the club have already reached Goa and are in self-isolation. This is indeed good news for the club faithful.

The Men of Steel have made quite a few quality additions to their squad this season. Aside from hiring Owen Coyle, they also managed to rope in Chennaiyin’s star striker and ISL’s Golden Boot winner Nerijus Valskis. 

Defender Tiri left the club to sign for ATK Mohun Bagan but the Men of Steel have brought in Nigeria’s Stephen Eze and former Motherwell FC skipper Peter Hartley to guard the heart of the defence.

Among new Indian recruits, they have signed Indian international winger Jackichand Singh from FC Goa.
