Bengaluru FC Sign Gabon International Defender Yrondu Musavu-King

Looking forward to their AFC Cup campaign this season, Bengaluru FC has announced the signing of Gabon International Yrondu Musavu-King on a deal that will see him participate in AFC Cup preliminary round matches for the blues. And hopefully, if they make it to the group stage, the Gabon International will be leading the defence line of Bengaluru FC.

The player has a lot of experience having played for top-tier teams in his career which includes Granada CF, FC Lorient, Udinese Calcio and Toulouse.

The former SM Caen youth player was last seen playing for French third-tier team Le Mans FC and has been a free agent since July 2020.

The delighted Yrondu Musavu-King can't wait to join his new teammates, “I had a chat with coach Pezzaiuoli about how he wants to play and his expectations of me and I have been looking forward to this new challenge. I have to thank the director, the coach, and the club for opening their doors to me. I’m eager to join my new teammates soon.”

He further added, “I’ve known about the Indian Super League for a few years now because of the French players who have played there in the past, like Robert Pires and Bernard Mendy. I will admit that I didn’t know much about Bengaluru FC, but I spoke to my former national team selector Jorge Costa, who was with Mumbai City FC, and he told me that Bengaluru FC is a top club and that the Indian people are very kind."

Bengaluru FC new boss Marco Pezzaiuoli delightedly stated, “I am very happy that King has joined the BFC family. He is a fantastic personality who brings with him the experience of having played in France and Italy and I am certain the dressing room will benefit from this. King is a young, versatile player who can play in a number of different positions which gives us an advantage with different systems. At 29, he’s in the prime of his career and we’re adding a defensively strong player with a high quality and range of passes. He is someone who will stabilize our defence and strengthen the team.”

Bengaluru FC will begin their AFC Cup Preliminary Round campaign on April 14 in the GMC Bambolim Stadium in Goa. The Blues failed to make it to the top four this season.
