Rangdajied United\'s deadly winger David KC Ngaihte have penned a year contract with Shillong Lajong FC, FeverPitch.in can confirm.
David Ngaihte, who had a splendid season with Rangdajied United was the cynosure of all eyes, with offers from clubs like Royal Wahingdoh FC, Salgaocar FC and Mohammedan Sporting Club. But the Manipur youngster opted for Shillong Lajong as he wanted to stay closer to home.
Moreover, the prospect of playing in the Indian Super League for the Guwahati franchisee, which is owned by Lajong and John Abraham, made David chose Lajong over all the other clubs.
\"I have always been a big fan of Lajong and when I got the offer to play for them, it was impossible to resist. Moreover, the growth prospect I will be getting at Lajong, especially if I get a chance to play in the ISL would be comparable to none,\" David told FeverPitch.in.
David, who shot to limelight with his brace against Salgaocar in the I-League last season, was also excited about playing under Lajong coach, Thangboi Singto. \"I have great respect for Sir Thangboi and playing under him would be a different experience all together. I am really excited and can\'t wait for the season to start again,\" he concluded.
