Scottish striker becomes the third foreigner to sign for the I-League club for the 2013/14 season.
Salgaocar FC have strengthened their attack for the upcoming I-League season with the signing of Darryl Duffy.
The 29-year-old Scottish striker arrives at the Fatorda Stadium after spending the last two-years with English League Two side Cheltenham, where he was the leading goalscorer during the 2011/12 campaign, and becomes the third foreigner to join the club this summer.
General Secretary Raj Gomes feels the Greens are acquiring a talented forward entering his prime and tipped him to become a pivotal member of the squad.
“Salgaocar were looking for a good striker,” Gomes told IBN Live. “With his experience, I’m sure Darryl will play an important role in the first team this season.”
Duffy, who began his career at Rangers, played for 11 separate clubs before his surprise move to India and says he is acclimatising to head coach Derrick Pereira’s methods during his first week of training.
“The coach is doing a lot of things for us, inculcating good sleeping patterns, eating habits. The training system is mostly the same,” he said.
“The players are a friendly bunch, they’re really nice and I’m looking forward to playing with them.”
