Chennaiyin FC retains Bruno Pelissari

MUMBAI: Chennaiyin FC have retained Brazilian attacking midfielder Bruno Pelissari for the second season of the Hero Indian Super League.


The 22-year-old will be joining Chennaiyin FC on loan from Brazilian club Atletico Paranaense to feature in the 2015 Hero ISL. Bruno was on loan to CFC from Atletico Paranaense in the inaugural edition of the ISL also and played his part in Chennaiyin’s run to the semis with four goals in six starts.


Bruno’s goals came against FC Pune City, Mumbai City, Kerala Blasters and Delhi Dynamos. All three goals were quality strikes from the Brazilian but perhaps the most memorable one was the ‘Olympic Goal’ against Delhi Dynamos as he scored directly from a corner, beating world’s tallest goalkeeper Kristof Van Hout.


Following ISL 2014, Bruno returned to Atletico Paranaense and made five appearances for them in the Paranaense state championship.


Chennaiyin FC manager Marco Materazzi said, “We are very happy to have retained Bruno for the second edition of the Hero Indian Super League. Bruno is a player with great potential and he showed that many times last year, producing moments of magic in tight games. His presence in the squad gives us strength in depth in attacking midfield and I have full faith in him to have an even better season this time.”


I am thankful to Chennaiyin FC for retaining me and giving me the chance to play in India again. It was a wonderful experience to feature in the ISL last year both on and off the pitch. The fans of Chennaiyin FC are absolutely fantastic and I really enjoyed playing at home in Chennai. I am looking forward to the second season and the objective will be to make Chennaiyin the champions,” Bruno stated.
