NorthEast United FC Key Players: Didier Zokora, Nicolas Velez, Subrata Paul
Team owner John Abraham has outlined that he expects his team to play some attractive football on the pitch when the tournament kicks off. Nelo Vingada, the Portuguese coach, has been appointed as their head coach.
With five Brazilians on the roster, it would appear that NorthEast United FC will play football that is pleasing to the eyes. Subrata Pal and Rehenesh TP will battle for a starting spot with Wellington Lima, the Brazilian goalkeeper. Gustavo Lazzaretti and Mailson Alves will expect to play in defence with Wellington Priori and Fabio Neves Florentino completing their Brazilian contingent.
Former Ivory Coast skipper Didier Zokora, who has appeared in three world cups for his national team, is the marquee player for NorthEast United this season. His compatriot Romaric also joins him at his new club. Zokora could play a box-to-box role at his pomp but he is likely to have a more well-defined and restricted role in the ISL.
Katsumi Yusa, Sasha Aneff, Nicolas Velez and Emiliano Alfaro complete the list of foreign players on the roster. Argentine striker Velez was top-scorer for NorthEast United last season with five goals in the competition. He will be looking to do even better in ISL 3.
The Guwahati based side have a strong Indian contingent with Seityasen Singh, Rowllin Borges, Chhangte, Holicharan Narzary Lallianzuala, Mawihmingthanga, Robin Gurung, Reagan Singh, Sumeet Passi, Salam Ranjan Singh, Shouvik Ghosh and Nirmal Chettri on their roster. Chettri and Seityasen Singh in particular could prove to be key components in the team for Vingada. NorthEast United FC roster is placed below.
