New Delhi: The former Liberian national team skipper John Menyongar on Saturday signed a one-year contract with JSW Sports, a Bangalore-based I-League Club.
A versatile striker and attacking midfielder, Menyongar's first tryst with India was with United Sikkim in the second division before he signed for Shillong Lajong in the I-League for the 2011-12 season.
The 33-year-old's last switch was a loan move to Goan team Dempo last season.
"I am extremely happy to sign with JSW and am looking forward to giving my best this season. I was very impressed with the club's plans for the future and wanted to be a part of this professional set up. My main focus will be to train well and have a successful season," said Menyongar after signing the deal.
Menyongar, who has scored more than 100 professional goals, has a decade of experience with clubs in America and has even had the legendary Liberian striker George Weah for a teammate in national colours.
"John is the kind of player who can be expected to create goal scoring chances as well as score. He is bound to bring a lot to the team," said Pradhyum Reddy, assistant coach at JSW Sports.
While Arvind Narayan, Libero Sports Partner and Menyongar's FIFA Licensed player agent, said, "Menyongar is a quality player and will be a great addition to JSW Sports. He will help JSW Sports in their quest for winning titles on all fronts. We wish him all the best!"
