Mumbai City FC today announced the retention of Haitian striker Sony Norde for Season 3 of the Indian Super League (ISL).
Norde, who was awarded the ‘Best Player of the Season’ for Mohun Bagan in the 2015-16 I-League, will be seen adding extra firepower at the front for Mumbai City FC yet again this season, a media release said.
The 26-year-old winger from the island-nation of Haiti finished with three goals and three assists during his debut season of the ISL with Mumbai City FC last year.
His outstanding performance with the team made for an undoubtedly clear choice of the foreign players for the upcoming season as well.
Sony Norde has represented the Haiti national football team at both the youth and senior levels. Having represented his country 21 times, he has also made an appearance for the Haiti national team in the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
He represented Haiti in the ongoing Copa America campaign, where his dazzling pace tested the opponent’s defence.
On being retained by Mumbai City FC, Norde said, “I’m glad to have signed with Mumbai City FC again. I can’t wait to get back to training with the team and meeting the fans.”
Team owner Ranbir Kapoor said, “We’re delighted to have Sony back. He’s been one of our best players and is coming off a great season in the I-league as well.
He was one of the first names that we wanted back and are glad to have him wearing our colours.”
