Bengaluru FC signs Lenny Rodriguez
Bengaluru Fc signs experienced midfielder Lenny Rodriguez on season long loan deal for the upcoming I League season.
I-League champions Bengaluru FC added experienced midfielder Lenny Rodrigues on a season-long loan deal from ISL side FC Pune City, to cement their title hopes. He is the second signing announced in a span three days by the Bengaluru side.
The lanky twenty nine-year-old from Goa will look to add his experience to Albert Roca’s side. He played for some top tier Indian clubs including Churchill Brothers , Dempo and Mohun Bagan.
“This is a dream for me. I was in talks with Bengaluru when the club was formed in 2013 but things didn’t work out due to my existing commitments. It’s nice to be able to get that chance again and I want to make it count. It’s an honour to turn out for a champion side like Bengaluru’s,” Rodrigues said, according to a Bengaluru FC release.
Bengaluru coach Roca said he was confident about the value addition that Lenny would bring to the squad. “We’ve been keeping an eye on Lenny and I have even been watching some old footage of him. We think he will fit well into our system and we’re glad to have him on the team,” said Roca.
