East Bengal have completed the signing of 23 year old Striker Ronaldo Oliveira from Salgaocar FC for an undisclosed transfer fee. Ronaldo was the top scorer of the recently concluded Goa Pro League.
Coming from the Salgaocar Juniors, Ronaldo made a name for himself in both the junior as well as the senior level. He caught sight of everyone with an influential performance during the Awes Cup last year where Salgaocar managed to stun the ISL side FC Pune City. It was earlier reported that Pune City were close to signing the talented Goan Striker but seems to have been taken aback due to the recent financial crisis.
East Bengal Coach Alejandro Menéndez seems to have been impressed by the young lad and has poised his faith in Ronaldo to lead their attacking line for the upcoming season. It would be really exciting to see whether Ronaldo will be able to fill the void created by the departure of Jobby Justin to ATK.
