Kerala Blasters is proud to announce the signing of Mumbai born Midfielder, Darren Caldeira. The 31-year-old Darren will be joining the club for the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL) from Mohun Bagan AC, an I-League franchise. The 183 cm tall player started his career with Mahindra United where he spent a year with the Spanish La Liga side Valencia CF on a one-year visit to train with the under-18 players.

The former Bengaluru FC player, who was a part of the Blues’ maiden I-League-winning campaign in 2013 has also played for Air India FC, Mumbai FC, ATK and Chennai City FC before joining the Kolkata giants.

“I’m delighted to be wearing yellow this season. It is a great time to be part of a club that has a clear set of objectives they wish to achieve with an accomplished coach and a new set of players. I’m hoping to turn a new chapter in my football career with the Blasters. The fans and the club deserve a good season going ahead and I look forward to playing my part in making that happen”, says Darren Caldeira

Darren is a very consistent and stable player who can play all over the mid-field. I’m very happy to have signed an all-rounder like him who can take on multiple positions. His experience with several ISL and I-league clubs will surely be an asset to the team. Moreover, he has proven to be a team-player with a great attitude. Look forward to working with him, says Eelco Schattorie, Head coach, Kerala Blasters FC.
