Pratik Chaudhari signs for Bengaluru FC – Official

Pratik Chaudhari signs for Bengaluru FC

After months of rumours floating around, Mumbai city FC defender Pratik Chaudhari has officially made the move to Bengaluru FC.

Pratik Chaudhari, initially thought of as a backup player for the Islanders, performed exceedingly well and was a part of the all Indian back-four of Mumbai City FC in quite a few matches. He partnered with fellow centre-back Sarthak Golui to act as a wall at the back.

Although Pratik punched above his weight to plug the holes for Mumbai City defensively, the team still ended up conceding 29 goals in the season. Mumbai City ultimately failed to qualify for the playoffs this season.

However, the situation has been the opposite for Bengaluru. They had a solid defence which conceded the second-lowest goals this season, and Albert Serran and Juanan have done a decent work at the back. They are expected to stay at the club, but with age not at their side, BFC might need a backup for them.

And in Pratik Chaudhari they have the perfect player. After impressing National Team coach Igor Stimac this season, Pratik also earned a national team camp call-up early this year. With a year peak years left in his tank, he could be a vital player for Bengaluru.

At 6 feet 2 inches, Pratik has an advantage in winning aerial duels. He also scored his first ISL goal in 2019-20 against ATK to give his team the lead. Overall, BFC have got a handy player at their disposal now.

Bengaluru is now Pratik Chaudhari’s fifth ISL club, with previous stints at Kerala Blasters, Delhi Dynamos, Jamshedpur and Mumbai City. Hopefully, Pratik will be able to replicate his form for his new club as well.
