ISL: Mumbai City FC sign two new foreign recruits

Modou Sougou

Mumbai City FC continues to make additions to their squad for the upcoming 2018-19 season of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL), with the signing of Modou Sougou and Arnold Issoko.

Sougou and Issoko complete Mumbai City’s tally of seven foreigners, with less than a month to go for the start of the league.

Moudou Sougou is a right winger who has spent the most of his career in Portugal and was last playing for Portuguese outfit Moreirense, on loan from Sheffield Wednesday. The 33-year-old has also played for Ligue 1 outfits Marseille and Evian (on loan) but failed to make an impact there before leaving for Sheffield Wednesday.

Arnold Issoko, meanwhile, joins the Islanders from Portuguese outfit Vitoria de Setubal for which Sougou has also turned out for. The 26-year-old has been capped by DR Congo once and can play as a right-back or as a winger.

The two new signings will have a chance to take to the field in India for the first time when Mumbai begin their Hero ISL campaign against Jamshedpur on October 2.
