Rohit Kumar Joins Odisha FC on Two-Year Deal

Bhubaneswar: Odisha FC has officially signed midfielder Rohit Kumar on a two-year deal, making him the club’s first summer acquisition.

Rohit Kumar, an India International, brings a wealth of experience to Odisha FC with over 80 ISL appearances and 9 caps for the national team. A graduate of DSK Shivajians, Kumar made his debut for the Blue Tigers against Kyrgyzstan, coming on as a substitute for Thapa in a match that India won 2-0.

Throughout his career, Kumar has secured significant honors with both club and country. He won the Durand Cup with Bengaluru FC (BFC) and has also been part of India’s victorious squads in the SAFF Championship, the Tri-Nation Series, and the Intercontinental Cup.

Expressing his excitement about joining Odisha FC, Kumar stated, “I’m thrilled and excited to be a part of the project here at Odisha FC. My conversations with the coach have been very positive, and I’m looking forward to working under him and learning from him. I’ve watched his teams play for many years in the league and always wanted to challenge myself in this type of system. Teams coached by Sergio Lobera have always been difficult to play against, and I’m looking forward to seeing myself play this style of football.”

Odisha FC’s head coach, Sergio Lobera, shared his thoughts on the new signing: “Rohit is a player I have liked a lot for a long time. He fits perfectly into our style of play, he is good with the ball and without the ball, and he is very competitive.”

The club extends a warm welcome to Rohit Kumar and wishes him success during his tenure at Odisha FC.
