Head coach Kiko Ramirez stated: “Hector is going to give us the defensive balance that we need to improve the tactical game of the team. He is an experienced player who played in the first division in Spain and knows how to command the defensive line. He is also an aggressive player in defending and can help us in taking good decisions during the game for the build-up. He is a winner in a duel with the ball in the air and he will give us power in set-pieces both in attack and in defence.”
Welcoming Hector to Odisha FC, Club President Mr Raj Athwal said, “We are very pleased to have captured the signature of Hector Rodas. Having played at the highest level in Europe we are looking forward to seeing him show his great qualities in an Odisha shirt.”
Odisha FC had finished the previous season as wooden spooners as they could only manage two wins from 20 matches. Thus, Rodas will look to help the team in turning the tables in the eighth season of the tournament.
