Will Kerala Blasters be the launchpad that Dheeraj Singh needs? – Superpower Football

Hi, what are you looking for?


Will Kerala Blasters be the launchpad that Dheeraj Singh needs?

Dheeraj had been a standout performer in the India U-17 team which had punched above their weight in their first ever FIFA tournament. He was the heaviest hitter, successfully fending off attacks and punching balls to safety. 



Dheeraj Singh left I-League side Indian Arrows at the start of the year and was spotted in a Kerala Blasters kit at the JLN Stadium in Delhi before the Indian Super League (ISL) game between Blasters and Delhi Dynamos. The Manipuri lad was expected to go to foreign shores for trials, with a number of sides lined up for his trials. Scottish top division side Motherwell were among the earliest teams linked to the keeper but English sides Blackburn Rovers, Charlton Athletic and Premier League team West Ham United have also been reported to have shown interest in him. 



However, Dheeraj’s agent confirmed that the youngster is simply training with the club to maintain his fitness level. The agent further added that he will train with Kerala Blasters for three-weeks, after which he will leave for the foreign trials. The news came off as a surprise to many who were taken back after spotting him in a Blasters kit but it can prove fruitful for the youngster as David James, Blasters’ head coach has been a successful keeper for Liverpool and England national team. The three week stint as reported should warm him up for the trials and even gives Dheeraj an opportunity to get used to a senior team environment. 



Dheeraj might consider playing under David James as well by the looks of the arrangement but the stint should definitely help him maintain his fitness ahead of the all important trials. Do you think Dheeraj can flourish under James at Blasters if he decides to stay?
