The former Minerva Punjab and Kerala Blasters forward Manandeep Singh has joined the Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan ahead of their I-League clash against Shillong Lajong. The Hisar born striker was seen taking instructions from the headcoach during the training session.


The 25-year old last took the field in the Minerva Punjab outfit where he failed to make any impact, playing 458 minutes for no goal. It was highly speculated that Minerva Punjab owner Ranjit Bajaj was unhappy about the performance which led to his dismissal from the playing side after a few initial games.


Mohun Bagan would be the seventh club for Manandeep in I-League in the span of eight years as he’s had stints with Pailan Arrows, Air India, East Bengal, Rangdajied United, Salgaocar FC and Minerva Punjab SC, though the striker has played his best football with Air India scoring nine times in 18 matches. He has played three matches for India, one in Nehru Cup and two international friendlies, in which the Blue Tigers ended on the losing side.

Upon joining the Mariners, Manandeep Singh spoke to Jersey saying, “I’m happy to be back in Kolkata all over again. I’m confident of hitting the high and committed to win matches for my side.”


Manandeep Singh, whose career has highly been scarred by the series of injuries has also had stints with Delhi Dynamos in the inaugural season and Kerala Blasters in the following season. With the current balance of Bagan side, it’s highly understood why coach Sanjoy Sen has tapped on Manandeep, who’s a good box striker who can play up at the Central Attacking role.
