Chennayin FC signs Bosnia’s Enes Sipovic for 2020-21 ISL season

Chennai: Two time ISL champion Chennaiyin FC today announced signing of Bosnia and Herzegovina center back Enes Sipović for the 2020-21 season.
The towering 6’6” defender joins the team on a free transfer after a stint at Qatar top flight side Umm Salal SC.
Sipović becomes CFC’s third signing ahead of the upcoming season, following the arrival of Indian full backs Reagan Singh and Chhuantea Fanai recently, a CFC release said.
Sipović, who turned 30 last week and will be the first Bosnian to feature in the ISL, was excited about playing in India and was looking forward to joining the ranks of
new CFC Head Coach Csaba László.
“I was instinctive that India will be my next destination. I am very happy to be part of such a beautiful club. I have been following Chennaiyin since its very first season in 2014 under Marco Materazzi and I am aware that it is a team that has a tremendous fanbase and is incredibly successful,” Sipovic said.
”I am already very excited for the new season. It will be a great experience, I am sure,” he added. “Enes (Sipović) has all the qualities to succeed at CFC and in the ISL. He is an imposing presence in the air with his height and is extremely comfortable with the ball at his feet. I am sure he will strike a great partnership with Eli Sabiá in defence and will be the
perfect addition to our squad in terms of guiding our Indian defenders as well”, Chennayin’s man-in-charge Csaba Laszlo said.
”He has experience of playing in Asia, specifically in more extreme conditions like in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which I am certain, will hold him in good stead
in India,” he said.
