Transfer News: FC Pune City signs former East Bengal forward

XtraTime Web Desk: ISL side Pune City FC signs former East Bengal star Robin Singh from Kolkata outfit ATK for the upcoming season. The former Tata Football Academy graduate have played 30 times for the national side scoring 5 times. Popularly known as the ‘Poster-boy’ of Indian Football has always been on the headlines for various reasons. The strong, physically built centre-forward also scored the all important goal against Guam in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in 2015, which gave India not only the solitary victory in that campaign, but also the lifeline to play the 2019 AFC Asia Cup Play-off Qualifiers.




Robin started his I-League career in East Bengal and had a sensational season alongside Australian Tolgay Ozbey to become the cynosure of all the East Bengal fans. He had a couple of great seasons for the then I-League giant Bengaluru FC as well under coach Ashley Westwood. He also won the I-League and Federation Cup titles for the Blues in two consecutive seasons.




He is never an out and out goal-poacher, but his work-rate on the pitch has always marked him as a genuine ‘team player. No doubt, his inclusion will be a massive boost to the likes of Alfaro and Marcelinho in FC Pune City.
