FC Goa’s centre midfielder Glan Martins has signed a new three-year deal with the Gaurs ahead of the upcoming edition of the Indian Super League (ISL).

“It’s really exciting for me and my family to sign this three-year deal with the club,” Martins told the official FC Goa website after putting pen to paper until at least 2024.

“I’ve grown so much here at this club in a very short time, both on and off the pitch. I would like to think that I am now more aware of what is expected of me, I know what I need to bring to the table. “I feel like I’m in a position now, where I’m finally starting to realise my potential and give my all for the cause.

“There is more that I can do here at FC Goa to help the team. I want to play in the Champion League again. I want to win trophies here. Not only for the Club and the team, but also for the amazing people of Goa. I’m really excited to see what we can go on and achieve in the coming years.”
