22 Jun Isaac Vanmalsawma – The Attacking Midfielder We Need
Issac Vanmalsawma along with full back Laldinliana and center back Zotea Ralte have been signed by Chennaiyin FC for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League. The 21 year old midfielder joins Chennai after an underwhelming season at FC Pune City. But what’s special about Isaac that should make Chennaiyin FC fans excited.
The 21 year old usually plays as an attacking midfielder or as a right winger, He is great at set peices and can play some very good passes in the final third. Our team has always been void of Indian attacking midfielders who can play the final pass. Francis Fernanded and Thoi Singh have been great for us over the years, their workrate can be unmatched, they played a great part in us winning the league, but their end product is way below what you expect from your attackers.

Isaac is known for his remarkable technical abilities and exceptional vision. Isaac’s greatest strength is his ability to play defence-splitting passes. He can spot teammates in final third and play some perfect through balls. He is often termed as a dead ball specialist and used to deliver some great balls from freekicks and corners for Shillong.
Were Would He Fit In ?
He can replace Francis Fernandes at our right wing and can also be used as backup attacking midfielder for Raphael Augusto. His abilities at set pieces can be something which we can utilize
