Coming to India and playing for FC Pune City in the Indian Super League is an exciting prospect for me.

Pune: FC Pune City announced the signing of defender Damir Grgic to toughen their squad’s defence line for the ISL Season 4. The Croatian will make his debut in the league.

After acquiring his signature, FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel said, “Damir comes to us on back of a very good season in Slovenia. He is strong and powerful and will offer a towering presence at the back. He is comfortable passing and tackling with both feet and will complement Rafa perfectly. ”

In 2010, Damir started his youth career with the Croatian first division club NK Karlovac only to move to German club VfL Bochum a season later. Since 2015, the Germany-born Croatian has been playing in Slovenian PrvaLiga representing NK Rudar Velenje.

Happy to play in India
