Forward John Menyongar signs up with I-League club JSW Sports

The former Liberian national team skipper has signed a one-year contract with JSW Sports.

New Delhi: Former Liberian national team skipper John Menyongar on Saturday signed a one-year contract with JSW Sports, a Bangalore-based I-League club.

A versatile striker and attacking midfielder, Menyongar's first tryst with India was with United Sikkim in the second division before he signed for Shillong Lajong in the I-League for the 2011-12 season.

The 33-year-old's last switch was a loan move to Goan team Dempo last season.

"I am extremely happy to sign with JSW and am looking forward to giving my best this season. I was very impressed with the club's plans for the future and wanted to be a part of this professional set up. My main focus will be to train well and have a successful season," said Menyongar after signing the deal.

Menyongar, who has scored more than 100 professional goals, has a decade of experience with clubs in America and has even had the legendary Liberian striker George Weah for a team-mate in national colours.

"John is the kind of player who can be expected to create goal-scoring chances as well as score. He is bound to bring a lot to the team," said Pradhyum Reddy, assistant coach at JSW Sports.

While Arvind Narayan, Libero Sports Partner and Menyongar's FIFA-licensed player agent, said, "Menyongar is a quality player and will be a great addition to JSW Sports. He will help JSW Sports in their quest for winning titles on all fronts. We wish him all the best!"
