KOLKATA: Former Gokulam Kerala defender Fabricio Ortiz has attracted interest from Mohammedan Sporting Club, who are believed to be keen on adding him to their roster for the ongoing 2018/19 2nd Division League campaign.
The Kolkata-based side is said to have been impressed with what they saw in the centre-back during his stay with Gokulam.
The news of Mohammedan’s interest in the Argentine has been confirmed to IndiaFooty by a source close to the player, who added that Mohammedan is keen to sign the 28-year-old.
“Mohammedan is interested in Fabricio Ortiz. The club was impressed with what they saw from the player during 2018/19 I-League. They have also made a offer to Fabricio. Everything now is left to the player to make a decision,” said the source.
Fabricio was signed by Gokulam at the start of the season but the defender has not turned out to be the player that team management was hoping for and he was released from his contract last month.
Although initial reports suggested Fabricio is on his way to join York 9 FC for the inaugural edition of the Canadian Premier League, it appears like Fabricio may soon found a new home in India.
