As it was exclusively reported by us earlier East Bengal have completed the signing of 21 year old striker Ronaldo Oliveira from Salgaocar for a sum of 10 Lakhs. Ronaldo was the top scorer of the Goa Pro League last season scoring 23 Goals.
Coming from the Salgaocar Juniors, Ronaldo made a name for himself in both the junior as well as the senior level. Ronaldo caught the eyes of everyone with an influential performance during the Awes Cup last year where Salgaocar managed to stun the ISL Side FC Pune City.
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 left in by the departure of Jobby Justin to ATK.
