Hyderabad FC have signed the services of Spanish striker Javier Siverio ahead of the eight season of the Hero Indian Super League, the club announced on Monday. Thus, Hyderabad FC have bolstered their front line for the upcoming edition of the tournament.
The Spaniard is delighted to join hands with the club and he is looking forward to making his debut in the league.
“I am really excited to sign for Hyderabad FC and I cannot wait to make my ISL debut,” said Siverio after completing the formalities.
“Last season, the team was very close to making it into the top-4 and I am sure we will be aiming for a higher finish in the upcoming campaign,” the 23-year-old added.
The youngster started his youth career with Laguna before joining the youth setup of Spanish Segunda Division side Las Palmas in 2015. In fact, the six-feet tall forward played under the tutelage of current Hyderabad FC coach Manuel Maquez in the 2016-17 season while representing Las Palmas B side.

Marquez heaped praise on the youngster and stated that the 23-year old is a natural finisher.
“Javi Siverio is a young striker who has played for the academies at Las Palmas and Racing Santander, where he also scored for the senior side.”
“He is a natural finisher, is very clever inside the box and is also strong in the air. He is only 23 and will join Hyderabad to try and show us his qualities,” the mister added.
Siverio has become the fourth foreign player to join the club in this season after Bartholomew Ogbeche, Edu Garcia and Juanan. The Spaniard is overall the 10th signing which has been made by the club.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad FC had finished at the fifth place in the points table in ISL 2020-21 season after six wins from 20 matches and thus just missed out on the semi-finals spot. Thus, they will look to turn the tables in the next season.
