Born in Goa, Augustin Fernandes is an Indian defender playing for FC Pune City. As a youngster, he played for SESA’s youth and senior team, before earning a move to Goan giants Salgaocar FC. He had an outstanding season at the heart of defence as Salgaocar won the I-League in the 2011-2012 season as well as the Indian Federation Cup. Durand Cup success also followed, with Augustin regularly turning in starring displays. He was a defensive rock for Atletico de Kolkata in their crowning season of the ISL, with his versatility a major bonus, and we believe we’ve pulled through a coup by signing the talented centre back.
