Odisha FC proved to be one of the busiest teams in the transfer window as they made wholesale changes to the squad ahead of the new season. The management pulled off a coup by bringing in former Premier League player Steven Taylor, with the centre-back set to captain the side this season as well.

The foreign duo of Taylor and Jacob Tratt will be joined by the experienced pair of Shubham Sarangi and Gaurav Bora, with several youngsters looking to make their mark as well. Although the side struggled defensively last season, Stuart Baxter will hope that the new signings can help in shoring up the backline.

The side boasts of a strong Indian contingent within the Odisha FC squad including players like Shubham Sarangi, Vinit Rai and Nandhakumar Sekar. All eyes will be on Brazilian playmaker Marcelinho and his magic left foot, with the 33-year-old third on the league’s list of top scorers with 31 goals and top of the assists table with 18. His partnership with forward Manuel Onwu will be especially crucial to Odisha FC’s playoff hopes.
