Speaking about Rochharzela Khalid said that “Rochharzela will join us next season. He has worked with me at Aizawl FC. Last year, he played very well for them and scored many goals. He is a promising player, he can replace Redeem.”

The head of NEUFC academy also mentioned that they've procured local boy Nabin Rabha from Shillong Lajong FC who can play in any position in defence. Nabin was a compatriot of NEUFC left-back Rakesh Pradhan back in Shillong Lajong.

Addition of these two youngsters can prove of immense value to NEUFC if everything goes as planned. Highlander Brigade welcomes Rochharzela and Nabin to the NorthEast United Family and wishes them the very best.
