Ravi Puskur, the Director of Football FC Goa, stated that the player had performed consistently at the Goa pro league thus a good reason to have him on the team.

“Devendra is a player who has consistently performed at the Goa Pro League and has racked up goals, season after season. He’s a clever player who drops to assist in the build-up and also finds himself smart pockets of space.” Ravi Puskur said.

The 33-year-old joined from Nea Salamis Famagusta in Cyprus where he had 23 appearances from last season.
