Panaji, January 9: Gokulam Kerala FC has bolstered their attack with two foreign forwards on Wednesday. Gokulam has signed Trinidad and Tobago striker Marcus Leric Jr Joseph and Ghanaian player Charles Teiko Folley for the ongoing I-League season.
Marcus Joseph is a prolific goal scorer and has represented his country in all the age groups. The 27-year-old has only played in the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League and this will be his first outing outside his home country. Marcus has replaced Joel Sunday, who was on loan with Gokulam Kerala FC.
Another player signed by Gokulam is the 30-year-old Ghanaian player Charles Teiko Folley. He has played for various clubs in Cyprus and Egypt.
“These two players are good goal scorers and I hope this will solve our problem upfront. We were not able to exert ourselves in the final third and these players can create chances and also score goals. We were searching such players and we hope they would be a good signing,” said Bino George, the head coach of Gokulam Kerala FC.
Gokulam Kerala FC faces Churchill Brothers SC in Goa on January 10. The match will be telecast live on hotstar and jiotv live. The club is also expected to sign another foreigner in the coming week to add more threat upfront.
