Fans were welcomed to a completely unexpected signing that came to fore this Wednesday in the form of Senegalese midfielder Mouhamadou Moustapha Gning. A central defensive midfielder with great physical abilities, Moustapha Gning previously played for Spanish clubs SD Ejea, Lleida Esportiu, CD Ebro, SD Amorebieta, and CD Sariñena. Last year, he made 36 appearances for SD Ejea across both Segunda Division B and Copa Del Rey.
Moustapha is a rock in the midfield and will aid the likes of Sahal, Mario Arqués, and Segio Cidoncha to play more freely in the centre. He is now the fifth foreign signing for us this season.
As much as we are curious to know more about him, the 30 year old stated that he is also curious to know more about Indian football and discover the culture of Kerala. He has promised to give his best on the pitch and fight for goals. Let us welcome Moustapha to strengthen our central midfield.
