ISL Chennaiyin FC Team 2016

Chennaiyin FC 2016 squad players is placed here. Chennai FC are coming into the third edition of the Indian Super League as defending champions after beating FC Goa in last year’s final on December 20, 2015. They had reached the semis in the inaugural edition of the competition. Chennaiyin FC tickets match tickets for home games can be bought online here.

Chennaiyin FC Key Players: Jeje Lalpekhlua, Raphael Augusto, John Arne Riise

The side will play their home matches at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai which has a capacity of 45,000 spectators.

Former Italy international defender Marco Materazzi, who played for Chennaiyin FC in the inaugural edition of the tournament, will manage the side for the second season in a row.

The team have been dealt with a massive blow even before a ball has been kicked. Last year’s stand-out performer Stiven Mendoza rejected an offer to return to the team for ISL 3. After protracted negotiations failed to pay off, club officials turned to Nigerian striker Dudu Omagbeni to lead the line. The forward has previously played for FC Pune City and FC Goa and has seven goals from 15 appearances in the competition.

Brazilian midfielder Elano, who was a very important member of the team in the past two editions of the ISL, will not be able to feature. John Arne Riise, the former Liverpool and Roma left-wing back has been signed up as their marquee player with Bernard Mendy also returning for the second successive season.

Thoi Singh, Jeje Lalpekhlua, Harmanjot Khabra, Baljit Sahni, Jayesh Rane, Mehrajuddin Wadoo and Karanjit Singh are some of the Indian players who will be very important to their chances of success in the competition this year.

Materazzi has also moved to sign Eder Fernandes, Raphael Augusto, Hans Mulder, Manuele Blasi, Davide Succi and Maurizio Pelusco for his new look side.

Chennaiyin FC have lost some quality players who made a real difference last season and they have not found like-for-like replacements for them. They have signed players with different qualities which suggests that a change of approach is on the cards. Exciting and challenging times lie ahead for Chennaiyin FC fans. ISL Chennai fc squad 2016 roster is placed below.

    A complete aligned side. We have the arsenal in all departments we can rip a team. Who are anxious about our frontline don’t worry Fikru-Mendoza will be absolute prolific and pivotal with our Indian strikers. Our midfielders are also capable of striking them with distain (Pelissari-Elano) .

  • poovarasan August 3, 2015, 12:12 am

    Pls take ronaldhino to second isl.
