ISL – FC Goa ropes in Australian midfielder Paulo Retre


FC Goa has signed 30-year-old Australian midfielder, Paulo Retre from the Australian A-League side, Sydney FC – IFTWC can confirm.

Despite the complicated scenario in their foreign contingent, after the departure of seasoned veteran Edu Bedia, FC Goa has added more firepower to bolster their midfield ahead of the upcoming season by transferring in, an experienced Australian midfielder. Paulo Retre has joined Manolo’s FC Goa ahead of the forthcoming season.

Paulo began his professional footballing career in the 2014-15 season when he was promoted to the main team of Melbourne City FC from their U-21 division. He already has 3 international appearances for the Australian U-20 side and also has scored 1 goal for the side. Playing for Melbourne for a whole 3 seasons until the 2017-18 season when he attracted offers from one of the rival sides in the same competition, Sydney FC was positive in bringing in Paulo and yet they succeeded in it.

He left Melbourne City FC after contributing a total of only 1 goal and 1 assist for the team, but everything amazingly changed when he joined Sydney. He started his scoring tally for his new club by scoring against his former club itself. He continued his journey with the team until the end of the 2022-23 A-League season, bagging a total of 4 goals and assisting 8 from 168 games.

Paulo has won 2 A-League titles with Sydney FC and was also an essential part of the team as he was controlling the pace of the game incredibly well in that midfield position. Now Paulo is bidding goodbye to Australia as this is his first time playing for a team outside his native country.

The Gaurs have already started working on the transfers by bringing in players like Sandesh Jhinghan, Boris Singh, Rowllin Borges, Raynier Fernandes, Udanta Singh, Carlos Martinez, and a couple of others still on the way. They are looking forward to seeing these new players rapidly linking up with the team and helping the team to possibly do better in the coming season.
