The club extends its full support to Albino. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing him back,” read Kerala Blasters FC’s official statement.
Gomes made his Hero ISL debut in 2015 and has featured in each season since then, during which he has played for clubs like Mumbai City FC, Delhi Dynamos FC, Odisha FC, before joining the Blasters FC in 2020.
