Indian Super League (ISL) club Mumbai City FC confirmed that goalkeeper Amrinder Singh will be leaving the club after five seasons as his contract with the club ended on Monday. He is all set to join ATK Mohun Bagan for the upcoming ISL season. Singh thanked Mumbai City FC for helping him to grow as a player and person in the last five years.
“I came to this club five years ago as a boy and now I leave as a man. I have learnt so much about football and about life in my time at Mumbai City FC. I have had the privilege of working with some of the best players, the best coaches, and staff here in Mumbai.”
The 27-year old goalkeeper will bid farewell to the Islanders after spending five seasons with the defending ISL Champions and League Winners. He was one of the longest-serving players of the club, who joined the club on September 7, 2016, initially on loan from Bengaluru FC. Singh made his debut for the Islanders in a 0-0 draw against FC Goa later in 2016. His performances were duly rewarded as the club offered a new three-year deal.
Singh was also named as one of the club’s captains by Jorge Costa in the 2018-19 campaign, The 27-year-old continued his rise as one of the finest shot-stoppers in the country and led Mumbai City to only their second semi-final appearance in five seasons of the ISL.
Under the head coach Sergio Lobera, Singh enjoyed personal and collective success. The Indian goalkeeper played a big role in the team during 2020/21 as Mumbai City FC won the maiden ISL League Winners’ Shield and league title. He will be replacing the Golden Glove winner Arindam Bhattacharya at ATK Mohun Bagan, who conceded just 19 goals with 10 clean sheets in 23 matches last season of ISL.
