Indian national team captain Sunil Chhetri was snapped up for a huge amount at the player auction before the second edition of the competition began. Chhetri repaid his employers with seven league goals last season. However, the side finished sixth last season – outside the semi-final spots. They only made an improvement of one league position in the process.
Team owner and film star Ranbir Kapoor admitted in a very candid interview to Rajeev Masand that he feels a huge responsibility to the side being a Mumbaikar himself. The side have done a lot at the grassroots level to help develop the sport in India.
Nicolas Anelka has been replaced by Alexandre Guimaraes as manager for the upcoming season. The side will be going into the new season with Diego Forlan likely to partner Chhetri in attack. The former Uruguay international is the proud recipient of two “Pichichi” trophies from his time in the Spanish La Liga.
The Pichichi is an award that is given to the highest goal-scorer in one league season in the Spanish top flight. Forlan also had international acclaim with Uruguay when he was awarded the player of the tournament at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Sony Norde will look to impress for the second straight season with Leo Costao, Krisztian Vadocz, Matias Defederic, Gerson Vieira, Walter Ibanez, Lucian Goain and Facindo Cardozo also aiming for starting berths in the team.
Besides Chhetri, goalkeeper Amrinder Singh, defenders Aiborlang Khongjee, Sena Ralte, Ashutosh Mehta, Lalchhuanmawai Fanai, midfielders Boithang Haokip, Pronay Halder and Jackichand Singh will be key players for Mumbai City FC this season. The side have also confirmed the capture of striker Udanta Singh from I-League side Bengaluru FC.
