Chennaiyin FC have retained their right-back Reagan Singh till 2023. Reagan has signed a new contract with the club which will keep him in Chennai in the next two seasons. Singh has great skills and had impressed in his maiden season for Chennaiyin FC.
Chennai had signed Reagan Singh from NorthEast United ahead of the previous Hero Indian Super League 2020-21 season. The 30-year old gave his gratitude to the club for believing in him.
“First of all I would like to thank the Chennaiyin family for believing in me. I feel proud to be part of one of the most successful teams in the country. I believe I contributed well and improved as a player in my first season. My ambition now is to help the club lift their third Hero ISL trophy, and the first of my career. I will work hard and keep improving, and I would also like to thank all our supporters for their unconditional support,” said an excited Reagan after putting pen to paper on a new deal.
“Reagan represents the strength and toughness in our squad. Having joined us with a wealth of Hero ISL experience already, he improved our defensive ranks last season, while also proving to be a threat in the offensive areas. A solid team player, we are absolutely delighted to extend Reagan’s stay with CFC. This is a reward for his consistent positive performances, and long may they continue. Also, being a senior player, Reagan is yet another leader of our troops,” said CFC co-owner Vita Dani.
Meanwhile, Singh started his professional career with Royal Wahingdoh in the Hero I-League in 2012. Subsequently, after three years with Royal Wahingdoh, he spent five years with NorthEast United in ISL before making a move to the Mariners.
Two-time champion Chennaiyin FC had a disappointing season in ISL 2020-21 as they finished at the eighth place after only three wins from 20 matches and they will look to turn the tables.
