Buam eager to produce his best for FC Goa in training and on matchdays
One of FC Goa’s newly signed youngsters Phrangki Buam believes that his decision to join the Gaurs ahead of Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2020-21 will aid his development as a player. FC Goa have produced some of the best talents in the Hero ISL over the years and Buam is looking forward to challenging for a place in a team he feels is the best for his development.
“FC Goa is the best club for a youngster like me and I will give my 100% in training and also on match days, if I get a chance to play. Before taking this decision, it took a long time for me to judge if FC Goa would be a good club for me. After a lot of deliberation, I think I made the right decision to move to FC Goa,” the 19-year-old forward said in an interview with khelnow.com.
While discussing his stint with FC Bengaluru United last campaign, Buam shared, “Last season, I made the move on loan to FC Bengaluru United for two very clear reasons. One was to gain more game-time at the national level and to improve myself. I feel I need to play more games in order to improve myself before going to the highest level of Indian football.”
“It was a new challenge, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. I had a great experience with FC Bengaluru United. It was my first club that I played for outside Meghalaya, even if it was just for a few months. I learnt a lot from Richard Hood and Gouramangi Singh. So, it was a fruitful experience for me,” Buam explained.
Having garnered the experience of playing outside Meghalaya with FC Bengaluru United, Buam felt that it was the right time to move to Goa. “I am very excited to be joining one of the best youth setups in the country at FC Goa. There are experienced, big-name players in the squad and we have a number of youngsters pushing them and pushing each other every day in practice. I think we have a great mix. I can’t wait for the season to start,” he gushed.
Buam, though, is under no illusions when it comes to what’s required of him to break into Goa’s first team. “As a footballer, I will have to accept and adapt to playing at a competition where the players are better. I have the confidence to play at a higher level and I am seeking to get better every day. I will try my best and keep working hard to improve in each and every training session,” he said.
