It is going to be his second season playing at Indian Super League. He has already proven himself in the league by being one of the best players of 2019-20 season when his side ATK lift the trophy after beating Chennaiyin by 3-1 in the final.
The 2020-21 ISL is expected to run from November 2020 to March 2021 and will be hosted behind-closed-doors across three venues in Goa due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in India.
