Indian Super League (ISL) side Chennaiyin FC have extended the contract of forward Rahim Ali until the 2023 season after his “solid performances” in the 2020-21 season.

Chennaiyin FC had slipped from fourth position in 2019-20 to eighth in the previous season.

“I am really excited to continue my journey and learning with Chennaiyin FC. I am looking forward to getting back on the pitch in CFC colours. The last season in Goa was one of immense experience and exposure. I am really grateful for the opportunities I have received; that I got a chance to prove myself,” 21-year-old Rahim, who scored two goals in the previous season, said.

“I will be more involved in the coming seasons and deliver for CFC. It will be a fresh start. I am elated to further strengthen my bond with the Chennaiyin faithful, and I along with the team do hope to bring joy to them in the coming times. This is an extremely challenging period for all of us, and I only hope they are all safe and doing well,” the Kolkata player added.
