The Islanders announced Brandon’s signing earlier this morning.

The mystery of what number Brandon Fernandes will sport at Mumbai City FC has been solved! The recently acquired midfielder, who returns to the club on a free transfer, will be donning the coveted number 10 jersey.

This signifies a significant role for Fernandes, as the number 10 is traditionally associated with a team’s playmaker or attacking midfielder – the one who orchestrates attacks and creates scoring opportunities.

Fernandes’ arrival bolsters Mumbai City FC’s attacking prowess. His flair and creativity are anticipated to significantly enhance the team’s gameplay. With Fernandes on board, the Islanders are well-positioned to achieve even greater glory in the upcoming season. The iconic number 10 jersey bestowed upon him signifies the high expectations Mumbai City FC has for his contributions to their championship aspirations.

Last season, Fernandes‘ impressive performance was undeniable. He contributed significantly to his previous team, scoring 3 goals and creating a remarkable 60 chances, the highest in the ISL. One of those goals came in a memorable performance against Mumbai City FC during the ISL semi-final.

Furthermore, his skills have been showcased on the national stage with 25 appearances and 7 assists for the Indian team.

The three-year contract, with the potential for an extension, highlights Mumbai City FC’s confidence in Fernandes’ abilities. The official announcement quotes Fernandes expressing his delight at returning to the club, which he views as a “new and exciting challenge” in his career.

Fernandes’ enthusiasm is evident as he speaks of his desire to contribute to the team’s success. His goals are clear: scoring goals and assisting teammates as they strive to add more trophies to the Mumbai City FC cabinet.

Fernandes acknowledges the coach’s ambition and is motivated by Kratky’s faith in his abilities. This mutual respect between player and coach bodes well for a successful partnership on the pitch.

With Fernandes sporting the number 10 jersey, fans can expect to see him orchestrate Mumbai City FC’s attacking plays. His experience and creativity, coupled with coach Kratky’s vision, have the potential to make a significant impact on the team’s performance in the upcoming season.

The iconic number 10 jersey bestowed upon him signifies the high expectations Mumbai City FC has for his contributions to their championship aspirations.
