Mumbai City FC captain Lucian Goian signs off after three years at the club

Romanian footballer Lucian Goian was signed by Indian Super League (ISL) club Mumbai City FC in 2016. He was appointed as the captain of the team in 2017 and led the team to the qualifiers during the 2018-19 season


On July 9, Mumbai City FC (MCFC) captain Lucian Goian decided to part ways with the Indian Super League (ISL) franchise as he left the club as the most capped player in the history of MCFC. Goian had been signed by the Islanders in 2016 as a central defender and played three seasons for the football club.

In 2017, he had been signed by Australian-League (A-League) club, Perth Glory as a short-term injury replacement. However, later he exited the club within the next three months and was signed by Mumbai City FC on a two-year contract. 

Eventually, he led the Islanders to the qualifiers in the ISL 2018-19 season where they were eventually knocked out by FC Goa. 

It may be a nearly impossible task for the club to find a replacement for such a strong leader and effective defender since Goain was one of Mumbai City FC's most valuable player.
