Highly rated Indian Goalkeeper Gurpreet Singh Sandhu has officially left Norwegian club Stabæk to make a return to Indian football . It is believed that he is set to a join a top ISL club for the 2017 edition.
Stabæk confirmed his departure with an official statement on their website. “John Alvbåge is loaned from IFK Göteborg to Stabæk in the season. The 35-year-old keeper replaces Gurpreet Singh Sandhu who leaves for Indian football.”
A Norwegian publication Budstikka also quoted manager Toni Ordinas saying: “Singh has been a good person to have in the club, and has developed a lot in time in Stabæk. Now he has made a club change which I think will be good for him.”
Sandhu set many records during his time in Europe by becoming the first Indian to play in a top division European League along with making a few appearances in the Europa League. However his fairy tale was cut short due to several injuries that hampered his progression through the ranks.
The ISL will prove to be a lucrative avenue. With the boost in sponsorship and funds being pumped into improving quality of squads, we hope Gurpreet Singh Sandhu is able to live up to the expectations and enthrall audiences with his performance on the pitch.
