MUMBAI: Mumbai City FC today announced the signing of two South American players from Argentina and Uruguay for the third season of the Indian Super League.

Gaston Sangoy, a 31 year Argentinian striker has previously won the Cyprus Cup in 2009-10 and more recently, the Polish I Liga in 2015-16. Having represented some of the major clubs throughout his career including Sporting Gijon, Apollon and Boca Juniors to name a few, Sangoy has continually shown fortitude when it has come to his performance.

Joining Sangoy, would be Uruguayan center back, Walter Ibanez who has spent a major part of his career playing for the top divisions in South America.

Alexandre Guimaraes, Coach, Mumbai City FC today said, "Gaston is a proven striker and a goal getter. He is a great asset up front and will always keep the opposition on their toes. Walter is a winner and if you see over the last two seasons, he has had over 60 appearances. That is a testament to his skill that he is a permanent fixture in the team for his coach. I am looking forward to working with both of them and forming a winning team."
