Chennayin FC signs Bosnia’s Enes Sipovic for 2020-21 ISL season

Chennai, Sep 21 (UNI) Two time ISL champion Chennaiyin FC

today announced signing of Bosnia and Herzegovina center

back Enes Sipović for the 2020-21 season.

The towering 6’6” defender joins the team on a free transfer

after a stint at Qatar top flight side Umm Salal SC.

Sipović becomes CFC’s third signing ahead of the upcoming

season, following the arrival of Indian full backs Reagan

Singh and Chhuantea Fanai recently, a CFC release said.

Sipović, who turned 30 last week and will be the first

Bosnian to feature in the ISL, was excited about playing

in India and was looking forward to joining the ranks of

new CFC Head Coach Csaba László.

“I was instinctive that India will be my next destination.

I am very happy to be part of such a beautiful club. I

have been following Chennaiyin since its very first season

in 2014 under Marco Materazzi and I am aware that it is a

team that has a tremendous fanbase and is incredibly

successful”, Sipovic said.

‘I am already very excited for the new season. It will

be a great experience, I am sure,” he added.

“Enes (Sipović) has all the qualities to succeed at CFC

and in the ISL. He is an imposing presence in the air

with his height and is extremely comfortable with the

ball at his feet. I am sure he will strike a great

partnership with Eli Sabiá in defence and will be the

perfect addition to our squad in terms of guiding our

Indian defenders as well’, Chennayin’s man-in-charge

Csaba Laszlo said.

‘He has experience of playing in Asia, specifically

in more extreme conditions like in Saudi Arabia and

Qatar, which I am certain will hold him in good stead

in India,” he said.
