Panaji, Aug 30 (IANS) Indian Super League (ISL) franchise FC Goa on Tuesday confirmed the re-signing of foreigners Gregory Arnolin, Luciano Sobrosa and Rafael Coelho for the forthcoming third edition of the football tournament.

Gregory has been the mainstay in FC Goa’s defence from the first season and instrumental in their march to the final of the tournament last year.

“I am very happy to sign with FC Goa again. I have been at this club from the first season and we have made it to the semi-finals and then the finals. This year I hope to be able to win the ISL with FC Goa for the fans. I will give my best so that FC Goa can be champions of the ISL,” Gregory said in a release.

Brazilian defender Sobrosa made seven appearances for Zico’s team last year.

The 37-year-old has been a veteran in the Indian football circuit with stints at various Indian clubs like Salgaocar, Sporting Goa and most recently, Mohun Bagan.

Coelho was signed mid-season last year after an injury to striker Victor Simoes ruled him out for the season.
