Yrondu Musavu-King on extension with Bengaluru FC

“First of all, I would like to thank the club CEO, the coach, all the staff and my teammates who welcomed me so well when I first came to India. I had good feelings about this club right from the start, and that is one of the reasons why I have decided to extend my adventure here,” said Musavu-King, following the completion of formalities on his new deal.

Musavu-King has featured at the international level with Gabon, making his debut in a 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Congo, and has turned out clubs in Europe’s top divisions like Granada, Udinese, Lorient and Toulouse, among others. The Libreville-born centre-back said he was excited and looking forward to the new season.

“This group has good quality and the coach convinced me about the project he is building at a club that has been so successful. This fresh two-year deal is a new chapter in my professional life and it is one that I will be approaching with everything I can give. My goal is to win as many games as possible. I have seen the mentality and quality this team possesses and I am confident that together we are going to achieve many beautiful things,” King added.

The defender’s extension follows the arrival of young Indian midfielder Rohit Kumar, and Marco Pezzaiuoli said he was happy to see the club keep hold of Musavu-King, who is a product of the Caen Academy in France.

“I am pleased that we have managed to secure the signature of Musavu-King. He is a fantastic professional with a wealth of experience as he has shown during his stay at Bengaluru FC so far. Football aside, he is also a warm personality in the dressing room and we look forward to having him in a Bengaluru shirt for two more seasons,” said Pezzaiuoli.

  1. Comment: our national coach mr stimac and our technical head mr shyam thapa is relied on isl to select player for national team they are not interested to spot player from any other indian league maybe they do not have time to watch other league so they made reservation for indian player in isl which mean low quality indian player will be highly paid and thus the young footballer will lose the zeal to excel because their hunger is fulfilled easily. Thus the isl will lose its quality standard thereby the brand value and marketing aspects. So less fund flow less football. This is short cut taken by mr stimac and mr shyam thapa using Afc guidelines. And indian footballer will not have to work hard for money as the corporates will pay them above expectation as they have no other option. This is good for indian footballer not for indian football. Indian is again put down to dark lane lead by technical committe head mr shyam thapa and head coach mr stimac
