Jamshedpur, Sept. 8: Another day and another signing for Jamshedpur. The club moved further towards closing its playing contingent for the Indian Super League (ISL) 2020-21 with the addition of Rehenesh Thumbirumbu Paramba to bolster its goalkeeping ranks. With Pawan Kumar already signed, the experienced TP Rehenesh will add another strong option for the first-choice keeper along with the young and promising Niraj Kumar.
The 27-year-old Rehenesh has over eight years of combined experience having kept 35 clean sheets in 128 matches in the Indian Super League and I-League so far.
On signing for Jamshedpur, Rehenesh said, �I have heard and myself seen a lot of wonderful things about Jamshedpur. The club�s vision, it�s facilities, the amazing treatment of players, youth and grassroots football are known and respected in the football circles.
The Jharkhand football fans are extremely vociferous, passionate and supportive and I am excited and proud to represent them in the club colours. I always like to push myself to improve and compete whether in training or games. The ultimate aim is to win.�
Rehenesh began his career with ONGC in the I-League and went on to represent Rangdajied, Shillong Lajong, East Bengal, NorthEast United and Kerala Blasters. The able shot-stopper is good with the feet, athletic and has a smart positioning sense. Head Coach, Owen Coyle expressed his thoughts on getting the goalkeeper on board.
He said, �With Rehenesh in the squad, we are in a strong position in the goalkeeping department and that gives us healthy competition for the first-choice goalkeeper, which I was looking for. His former coaches have always praised him and his performances over the years have been topnotch. Rehenesh comes with high quality, is a top competitor and highly motivated to earn the top spot and perform.�
The Kerala goalkeeper also spoke highly of Owen and said, �In my conversation with Owen Coyle, he was very clear to me about his objectives and expectations from me. I have huge respect for him and I�m eager to make the most of this opportunity to work with and gain from such an experienced personality.�
Rehenesh will be wearing the number 32 for Jamshedpur FC.
