The winger has played for India’s U-19 and U-16 sides.
Former Odisha FC winger Baoringdao Bodo has signed for I-League side TRAU FC, Khel Now can confirm. A source close to the development informed Khel Now, “Baoringdao Bodo has signed a one-year deal with TRAU FC.”
The 22-year-old was a part of Odisha FC last season. However, he did not feature in the Indian Super League. Thus, the decision to join an I-League side seems rational from the player’s perspective.
About the player
Baoringdao Bodo hails from Assam. Despite being a part of many Indian Super League clubs, he has made only five appearances in the competition. He was a part of the AIFF Elite team. He has played six games for India’s U-19 and U-16 sides. His first move came at a very young age to Chennaiyin FC in 2016. This followed a loan move to Minerva Punjab the very same year. In 2018, he donned the Gokulam Kerala colours, again on a loan transfer from the Marina Machans.
In the winter transfer window of 2019, he joined Kerala Blasters. After spending almost a year at the club, he made a move to FC Bengaluru United. In 2020, Odisha FC acquired the services of Bodo. His contract however, expired in May, 2022. He is expected to feature in the upcoming Durand Cup for TRAU.
