Delhi Dynamos rope in Mexican midfielder Ulises Davila
Delhi Dynamos FC on Friday confirmed the signing of Mexican attacking midfielder Ulises Davila for the remainder of the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2018-19 season. The 27-year-old will replace Serbian striker Andrija Kaludjerovic, who the club recently released.
Davila, who came up through the youth setup of Mexican outfit Guadalajara, holds the distinction of being the first Mexican player to be signed by English Premier League giants Chelsea, who secured his services back in 2011. He has also plied his trade in the Netherlands, Spain and his home country Mexico.
The midfielder was an integral part of the Mexican youth team which won the 2011 CONCACAF U-20 Championship and was the team's highest scorer in the tournament with four goals. He also played in the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup for Mexico and scored against France.
"I am pleased to welcome Ulises to the club as our first signing of 2019. Ulises is a good creative player, who can add a new dimension to our attack for the remainder of the season. His positive attitude and hunger to excel should do wonders for the team. We wanted a dynamic player to add to the team and he fits the bill," said Delhi Dynamos Director Rohan Sharma.
Delhi fans will hope Davila's inclusion will shore up an attack which has struggled this season. The Lions are currently in the ninth spot with just 7 points from 12 matches.
