New Delhi, Aug 17 (IANS) Delhi Dynamos on Friday announced the signing of Serbian striker Andrija Kaluderovic for the upcoming Indian Super League (ISL) football season.

The 31-year-old joins the ISL capital side on the back of finishing as the top scorer for Wellington Phoenix in the Australian League last season.

Kaluderovic’s signing takes the Dynamos foreign quota to four players, according to a release.

Kaluderovic has previously had stints in Serbia, China, Spain, Switzerland, Lithuania and Australia and has scored more than 100 goals in 236 club appearances.

The striker has also been capped thrice by the Serbian national team.

Head coach Josep Gombau is confident that Kaluderovic can replicate his past form in the ISL.

“Andrija is a very intelligent player who is quick and a good finisher. I have seen him play in the Australian league and he has performed consistently well both in the league and the continental cups as well. He has a great mentality and experience which will really help the side,” he said.

“I am excited to have joined a new league and a new team in Delhi Dynamos. The popularity of ISL is for everyone to see and a lot of foreign players are here so I am no stranger to this competition. I want to give my best and hopefully we will have a good season,” a delighted Kaluderovic said.
