Following Rafael Crivellaro’s extension and Božidar Bandović’s arrival, this can turn out to be the next positive move for Chennaiyin FC. If this move materialises, Mirlan Murzaev will be the first-ever Kyrgyz player to feature in the Indian Super League.

The 31-year-old plied his trade for FC Dordoi Bishkek last season, a Kyrgyz professional football club based in Bishkek that competes in the Kyrgyz Premier League. Mirlan Murzaev has shifted clubs 15 times in his career, of which he moved to FC Dordoi Bishkek five times. The other clubs the Kyrgyz forward has featured for include FC Kazanka Moscow (Lokomotiv-2 Moscow), Denizlispor, Afjet Afyonspor, and so on.
