A night which witnessed the Bhutanese sensation coming to the deliverance of Bengaluru FC, where the team went on to sleep without the likes of Miku, is the same night that confirmed the return of previous I-League's best player to the echelons of a rising giant in the canon of Indian football, named Neroca FC.

Chencho Gyltshen, the man whose late goals helped the Bengaluru to eke out almost impossible victories against North East, was offloaded to the Manipur-based I-League club,  after his failure to make it to the top eleven for Bengaluru FC.

In a combined game time of 333 minutes, all the striker could manage was a couple of goals, one coming from an exquisite back-volley, the second from mere predatory instincts.

He looked to be a complete mismatch at the face of Bengaluru's advanced outfit. With Miku not in the line-up, Sunil Chhetri hasn't been much of a hit and that exposed the skeleton of the Indian aces. Chencho was expected to fill that void and was highly disappointing, to say the least.

However, his stint with Neroca FC is bound to spark a lot of hopes in the Highlanders' hearts, as, despite occasional stunning performances, they haven't been their usual selves. Struggling at the 5th position in the table, Neroca has garnered 22 points in their kitty, already 8 adrift of leaders, Chennai in the ongoing edition.


With Katsumi Yusa and Aryn Williams being potential midfielders, Neroca lacks a proper striker up front. As per reports from, the arrival of Chencho will give them exactly what was the need of the hour. Chencho’s ability to convert half-chances will goose up the attacking intent of Neroca. Chencho ended his I-League stint with Minerva Punjab scoring 7 goals from 17 games and providing a handful of assists.


Dotingly tagged as the Ronaldo of Bhutan, Chencho’s addition to the squad will not only strengthen the Manipuri-based outfit but will make the competition a lot more alive than its current status quo.
