Ahead of the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL 2023-24), Odisha FC announced that they have parted away with forward Nandhakumar Sekar.
Sekar has been part of the side since its inception in 2019 and leaves the club after four seasons.
Sekar has featured in 59 ISL matches for Odisha FC during the past four seasons, scoring seven goals and supplying five assists. He was a vital part of the side in the ISL 2022-23 season, netting seven goals and tallying an assist, which was his best-ever season in terms of goal contributions. The Chennai-born winger also continued his sublime form in the Super Cup, finding the back on four occasions as Odisha lifted the Super Cup, which was the first silverware for the club.
Sekar was rewarded for his fine performances with a call-up to the Indian national team. The 27-year-old has been named in the 27-member squad by India head coach Igor Stimac for the Intercontinental Cup and the SAFF Championships.
