Spanish forward Javier Siverio joined Jamshedpur FC on loan from East Bengal FC during the winter transfer window last season. Although he experienced success with the Red and Gold Brigade in cup competitions and scored some crucial goals, Siverio struggled to maintain that form in the Indian Super League (ISL) with the Kolkata club.

Siverio endured a goalless streak in the league, failing to score in the ten matches he played for East Bengal FC. However, after moving to Jamshedpur FC, he rediscovered his scoring touch and ended the league season with three goals in eight appearances.

The Spaniard has now signed a permanent deal with the Men of Steel and will be aiming to continue his impressive form in India.

“From Day 1, coach (Khalid Jamil) has valued me and given me confidence. I think he knows me as a player and that’s why I have found my best football in Jamshedpur FC again,” Siverio told Sportskeeda after signing an extension with Jamshedpur FC.

Siverio joined Hyderabad FC ahead of the 2021-22 season, playing a crucial role under Manolo Marquez and helping the team secure the ISL Cup. He continued to be a vital player for Marquez in the subsequent season. Over his two-year tenure with Hyderabad FC, Siverio made 54 appearances, scoring 16 goals and providing two assists.

The 26-year-old then signed with East Bengal FC ahead of the 2023-24 season, before being loaned out to Jamshedpur FC.

"I have been in India for three years and have won the ISL Cup, the Super Cup, and was a runner-up in the Durand Cup. I've scored 23 goals in all competitions despite limited minutes at all three teams I've played for. I believe I've performed well at all clubs except Jamshedpur, which has shown interest in me. However, from the moment the season finished, my priority has been to continue with Jamshedpur because they have shown me great respect and confidence, which is most important for a player,” he stated.

Although his league record with East Bengal FC was underwhelming, Siverio's tenure with the Kolkata club had its highlights. He netted two goals in the Durand Cup, contributing to their runner-up finish, and scored another two goals in the Kalinga Super Cup, leading them to victory and ending their 12-year national trophy drought.

“Two medals in six months for the club after a 12-year drought—I don't think I did too badly. I scored some crucial goals to contribute to those achievements. Despite that, I feel they weren't entirely pleased with my performance, but I respect their decision. I really miss my teammates; we had an incredible group with amazing players. However, that's in the past now, and I'm focusing on this year and my future with Jamshedpur FC,” said the forward.

Siverio transitioned from East Bengal FC to Jamshedpur FC, where he maintained his strong performance levels. The head coach commended his adaptability as an aggressive striker, highlighting his seamless fit into the team's playing style and his contributions through hard work and goal-scoring prowess.

He also reflected on the challenges he faced at East Bengal FC.

“I think it’s easy to understand. I didn’t play enough minutes—just 300 in the league (equivalent to about 3 complete games)—and the team also didn’t create many chances because we were instructed to defend a lot. The change was obvious here at Jamshedpur FC. The coach knew me, and we were attacking and playing to win, which is why a player like me can score goals. With more playing time and being closer to the box, I believe I can perform at my best, and the coach understands that,” Siverio said.

As he moves into his fourth year in India, the Spaniard is eager to make new memories and help his team achieve better results in the league. He also shared his ambition to continue playing in the ISL for many more years.

“ISL is improving a lot in terms of physique and quality, and this will be happening every year if the league continues doing the things they are doing. Every year teams get stronger and you can see it in the games. I’m very happy in India and I hope to continue here for a lot of years,” Siverio commented
