About

The strapping central defender does not concede an inch to the opposition and plays with a maturity and confidence that belies his young age. Sandeep Jhingan was groomed at the St Stephen's Football Academy in Chandigarh and helped United Sikkim qualify for the I-League from the second division. He then blossomed in the top flight under the guidance of Baichung Bhutia and Renedy Singh even though the ‘Snow Lions' were ultimately relegated. The 2013-14 season saw 'Sandy' on loan to Mumbai FC and he starred in some notable victories and helped them avoid relegation. He also had short spells with Sporting Goa and DSK Shivajians in the Hero I-League. This will be Jhingan's fourth season with Kerala Blasters FC after three highly successful seasons with the club. He was named the ISL Emerging Player of League in the inaugural season.
