Bengaluru FC has finally signed its fourth foreigner after releasing the Honduran Roby Norales early this month. The Serbian attacker Marjan Jugovic, who brings in a plethora of experience playing in the Europa League and AFC Champions Cup will be seen donning the Blues’ shirt number 36 until the end of the season. 


Jugovic comes with an experience of playing for the likes of Poland, Syria, Iceland, Indonesia and Lebenan. He’s not only a tall customer but his extremely solid built will certainly challenge the I-League defence. 


"We hope the arrival of Marjan will add impetus to our attacking department," said Bengaluru coach Albert Roca


"He's tall, a proper target man and has very handy experience gathered across continents. We have been creating so many chances but have struggled to put them away and Marjan's got his task cut out. I'm sure he will help get our season back on track.”


Bengaluru FC’s recent form hasn't been going too well and being him on board will give a ray of hope to Roca and the Club fans. Its just a matter of time that the fierce looking striker is off the hook as the Serbian is most likely to make his debut in India against the debutants Minerva Punjab at their home. 


"I'm very happy to join a big club in India and one that's famous across Asia too. I hope to help the team have a successful finish to the season and will be giving my 100% to the fans, my teammates and the club. I was at the stadium on Saturday and saw the passion of the fans and I'm very excited to play for them," said Jugovic who arrived in the city on Friday.
