“I cannot express my joy enough to be able to extend my stay here with Mumbai City. Since joining the club in 2018, I’ve felt right at home and Mumbai City has helped me become a better footballer and a better person too. I feel like I am in the best shape and in the best moment of my career and a lot of the credit goes to the trust the Club, Sergio Lobera, my teammates, and the fans have shown in me,” said Bipin.
“The ambition at Mumbai City is to be at the top, to win silverware and I feel proud to have been a part of such a historic season with the club, winning the double. I honestly believe that this is only the beginning. I want to win more games, more trophies with Mumbai City, enjoy plenty more successes, and be a part of this special family for a long time to come,” he added.
“I’ve said it throughout the season that our biggest strength is that we have not only good players, but good people. It’s difficult to find an immensely talented player and a genuine person like Bipin. I have worked with so many footballers but Bipin’s work rate and his willingness to learn stand out. He was a key member of our group, winning two trophies and scoring some important goals. We want to build on this success and it’s important to retain the people that make the core and the soul of the team. I am delighted that Bipin has extended his time with Mumbai City and I wish him many more years of success with us,” said Sergio Lobera, Mumbai City FC’s head coach.
