Chennai, Oct 17 (TIWN) Two-time Indian Super League (ISL) champions Chennaiyin FC have completed the signing of Fatkhullo Fatkhulloev on a free transfer for the 2020-21 season.

The 30-year-old winger, who can operate on either flank, is all set for a first stint in India with tons of experience. Fatkhulloev is central Asian country Tajikistan's most-capped international with 68 senior appearances so far, and he joins CFC after a spell at FK Khujand in the Tajik top flight. The ISL guidelines for the new season stipulate each team to have at least one Asian player among their foreign contingent, and Fatkhulloev fulfils that criteria. "I have heard a lot about Chennaiyin, seen many matches from previous seasons. CFC is one of the biggest clubs in India with fantastic fans. So when the opportunity arose to make the move, I didn't think twice. I am really excited about meeting my new teammates, and hopefully delivering a good brand of football with them, which helps us compete for the ISL title," Fatkhulloev said in a statement.
