Nicolás Vélez – ISL 2015-16 season
The Argentine joined Northeast United FC during the 2015-16 season of the Indian Super League and played almost all the matches for the club during that season. Nicolas Velez scored five goals for the club and provided standout performances for the club regularly. The Argentine soon became favorite among fans, and his performances helped the Highlanders to improve their positions in the ISL table. However, Velez failed to lead his team into the ISL playoffs, and the club had to end the season again on a disappointing note. Due to his excellent performance, the management of Northeast United FC included him in the squad for the next season of ISL. Still, the following season he could not change the fortunes of the club. In his second stint, Velez played 11 matches for North East United FC, where he scored three goals.
