PUNE: Indian Super League (ISL) club FC Pune City today announced retention of Austrian midfielder Marko Stankovic and Brazilian forward Diego Carlos for the 2018-19 season.

Marko started his career with DSV Leoben back in 1991, after his stint with clubs like U S Triestina Calcio, SK Sturm Graz and Austria Wien, where he won one league title, featured in the Europa League and UEFA Champions League.

The midfielder has also represented Austrian junior and senior national teams.

Last year, Stankovic made 10 appearances for the Stallions.

"Marko is a solid midfielder, his control in the midfield and decision-making during the game is impressive. Diego played his heart out last season playing almost all the games. His chemistry with Alfaro and Marcelinho and his runs in the opposition's box made our frontline potent," FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel said.

Diego kicked off his youth career with Flamengo and after plying his trade for a couple of seasons in Brazil, he moved to play in the Russian National League where he represented Nizhny Novgorod and scored 10 goals.

Last season, the Brazilian winger made 18 appearances and scored two goals for FC Pune City.
