Jamshedpur FC completed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Wellington Priori ahead of the ninth season of the Indian Super League (ISL 2022-23). Wellington Priori was a part of the Jamshedpur FC inaugural ISL season and returns to the club after four seasons.
Having played in Brazil, Thailand and South Korea, Priori signed with NorthEast United of the Indian Super League in 2016 followed by a stint at the Furnace.
Wellington Priori will don jersey number 5 and join the squad in Jamshedpur for the pre-season in mid-August.
Wellington said, “I am coming back home where I belong. The time I have spent with the club was absolutely amazing and I am thrilled to be playing again at the furnace before the loyal and passionate Jamshedpur fans. Working with Aidy Boothroyd, who has abundant experience, will definitely help us succeed as a team. I will work hard with my teammates to win more silverware for Jamshedpur.”
Coach Aidy was elated at Wellington’s signing and said, “Wellington has all the attributes which you look for in a midfielder – he is technical, good with the ball, gets goals, and has experience of playing in the ISL. He is coming home, having played for the club earlier and will help him to hit the ground running.”
