After those poor first three seasons, the Pune squad that was selected during the ISL Draft needed to remember the need to bring in a mix of players that provided them with the desired results as opposed to those who were big-ticket ones.
Among some of the early players brought in to the squad, Adil Ahmed Khan was selected in a bid to bolster the centre, which could help them score a lot more goals.
Kean Lewis was also signed up after a good previous season for the striker and he would love to combine with Ahmed Khan to get the side on the scoreboard.
Pune also brought in Baljit Sahni and Kamaljit Singh, the latter having done well for Minerva Punjab in the previous season. Harpreet Singh and Issac Vanmalsawma were also picked by Pune during the ISL Draft.
What Happened in ISL
Before the start of the previous season, Delhi had made some fleeting changes to their coaching staff. Antonio López Habas of Spain was brought in as the coach in place of David Platt, whose contract ended the previous season, while Mohammed Sissiko was their marquee player.
Habas has also wasted no time in bringing Arata Izumi to FC Pune City following his own arrival. Izumi’s goals from midfield had helped Atletico remain in the hunt when the going got tough for Atletico in the second season.
The Japan born midfielder was their potential goal-scorer and creator from an advanced midfield position while Eugeneson Lyngdoh was expected to slot in at defensive midfield after playing the majority of last season in central defence.
Among others who were brought in for the previous season were Sanju Pradhan, Jonatan Lucca, Lenny Rodrigues, Bruno Herrero Arias, Pitu and Gustavo Oberman – a former Argentina youth international, all of whom competed for places in the midfield.
Gouramangi Singh, Augustin Fernandes, Eduardo Ferreira, Andre Bikey, Zodingliana Ralte and Dharmaraj Ravanan were their defensive options with Apoula Edel as the first choice goal-keeper. Gudjohnsen was expected to lead the line with Momar Ndoye and Anibal Zurdo also pushing for a starting berth. FC Pune City team list is placed below.
