Chennaiyin FC has signed Spanish midfielder Manuel Lanzarote for the remainder of the ongoing Indian Super League (ISL 2020-21) season, the club announced on Monday.
Lanzarote has been roped in as a replacement for club captain Rafael Crivellaro, who has been ruled out until the end of ISL 2020-21 due to an ankle injury.
The 36-year-old former FC Barcelona graduate will arrive in Goa immediately and undergo the mandatory quarantine procedure before joining the squad.
The Spaniard has previously played for FC Goa and ATK in the ISL, racking up 18 goals and eight assists in 33 appearances so far. He last played for CE Sabadell FC and UC Sant Andreu, helping the former win promotion to the Spanish second tier in 2019-20.
