2018 – 19 season saw the emergence of a new sensation in Indian football.Under the English coach David James, Sahal left no pillers untouched as he won the the ISL, FPAI and AIFF awards for the emerging player. He was also called up for the national team squad for kings cup by gaffer Igor Stimac and has played 4 matches for the Blue Tigers.

Sahal, who has attracted many ISL teams with his performance has surely made a mark for himself. The local boy has played 37 matches for KBFC, with a goal and 2 assists to his name.

However, things were not so good for the local boy last season. The fan’s favourite player was not in the starting eleven of Eelco Shattorie frequently which created some chaos and is visible in his stats too. But under new head coach kibu Vicuna who is known for bringing the best out of youngsters, we hope that he will be back with a bang.

“Football has always been my biggest passion and commitment since childhood. From the very start of my professional career, I have really enjoyed adorning the KBFC crest and playing in front of the loudest fans. My journey with the sport has just begun and I hope to achieve greater feats for the club and for myself in the years to come. This is my state, my people and my home. I’m here to continue.”, says a proud and ambitious Sahal Abdul Samad on signing an extension with the club.

“Sahal’s stay with the club is a re-affirmation of his commitment to the state of Kerala and a huge responsibility too. While we are extremely happy to have him as a part of the club for the next 5 years, I’m equally elated for our fans, who will get a chance to enjoy the game of our maestro in the upcoming seasons. This state has produced a number of football legends and we are committed to be the torchbearers in developing and nurturing young local talent, thereby reinforce the legacy of Kerala towards the sport”, said Karolis Skinkys, Sporting Director, Kerala Blasters FC, on Sahal’s contract extension.
