Gokulam Kerala has completed the signing of young forward Beneston Barretto, IFTWC can confirm.
Beneston Barretto ended up as the highest goal scorer of Guardian Angel SC while playing in the Goa Pro League. The 23-year-old, who played for Vasco SC previously, is a versatile forward who can play anywhere in the frontline. He was one of the fastest players in the GPL and possesses a strong right foot. He has a high degree of offensive awareness and is a good dribbler as well. Last season, he was one of the best players in the league and has now deservedly completed a move to the I-League.
After winning the I-League last season, Gokulam Kerala has lost many key players. Some of them have been poached by ISL clubs, while others, like Ubaid CK and Mayakannan, have joined fellow I-League clubs. While Gokulam has a major rebuild on the horizon, they have done pretty well so far by signing young players like Deepak Singh, Shoib Akhtar, and Akbar Khan. With Beneston’s signing, Gokulam’s attack will be spiced up even more, and together with Emil Benny, they can form a formidable attacking pair.
