Pune City ropes in Ralte and Vishal

FC Pune City has roped in winger Zodingliana Ralte and goalkeeper Vishal Kaith for the 2016 edition of the Indian Super League.

Newly appointed coach Antonio Habas, who has moved to FC Pune City from Atletico de Kolkata, wants to strengthen the team’s home-bred options.

Zodingliana is a versatile player and can play in a variety of positions. Kaith is one of the best young goalkeepers in the country.

Habas said, “Having had the chance to assess the various players we already have on board, we were able to identify the characteristics and positions needed to strengthen the squad. In both Ralte and Kaith, we are filling up the jigsaw puzzle with the right pieces. I can’t wait until all of them start training with us.”

Pune City did well in the first half of last season, but faded away in the second to finish seventh.
