Mumbai: Mumbai City FC on Wednesday signed Nigerian striker Bartholomew Ogbeche for the upcoming Indian Super League 2020-21 season.

The Nigerian centre-forward joins the franchise on a year-long deal.

Ogbeche has been a prolific goalscorer for both the Blasters and NorthEast United FC

Mumbai City had been negotiating with the striker for a long time now and coach Sergio Lobera was full of praise for his team’s new acquisition, calling him a “terrific goal-scorer and a role model’. “I have followed Bart extensively over the last two seasons, and I can say with certainty that he is a top class player. With his experience and influence, we know that Bart can contribute a lot to our team and to our club”, he added.

Ogbeche himself is relishing the opportunity of playing under the Spaniard and said, “In my two years in the ISL, I’ve come up a fair few times against Sergio Lobera’s team, and our coach’s positive and free-flowing brand of football perfectly fits my style and idea of the game.”

The former PSG, Alaves and Middlesbrough attacker stated, “I’m very happy and excited to be here at Mumbai City. Besides the brilliant mix of youth and experience in our team, the apparent quality and level of the squad speaks volumes about the ambitions we have here.”
