ANI  |  Football 

Eugeneson Lyngdoh on Monday signed a one year contract with Bengaluru Football Club. The 32-year-old first joined Bengaluru FC back in 2014 but after three years, he joined Kolkata-side ATK and played for two years.

Lyngdoh said that after rejoining the club, he wants to relive those moments and create new ones.

"Ever since I first signed for Bengaluru FC, I knew I was making the right decision. Now that I'm here again I want to relive those moments and create new ones. I'm looking forward to being back on the pitch and fighting for titles once again," the club's official website quoted Lyngdoh as saying.

Carles Cuadrat, Bengaluru coach, is elated over the signing and is sure that Lyngdoh's presence will help his side improve.

"I have worked with Eugeneson before and I know the kind of influence he has on the dressing room. He is a good professional with good habits," he said.

"I have no doubt about the fact that he will help the side improve and more specifically, the youngsters on the squad. He knows how we like to play, so we already have a head start with him," said Cuadrat.

The AIFF Player of the Year award winner in 2015, Lyngdoh netted 16 goals in 74 appearances in three seasons for the Bengaluru FC.

Apart from Lyngdoh, Prabhsukhan Singh Gill and Suresh Wangjam are the two other Indian signings for the club.
