Mumbai City FC winger Vikram Partap Singh expressed his delight at signing a contract extension with the club that will keep him with the Islanders till 2026. 

Just 21, Vikram has already played 46 matches for Mumbai City FC, scoring five goals in the process. He netted for the club in the crucial Hero Club Playoffs match against Jamshedpur FC that helped them qualify for the AFC Champions League. 

The youngster has been a regular feature for the Islanders from the bench and is slowly becoming an integral part of the first-team squad. 

Vikram though who has already got the taste of silverware, is hungry for more. 

“I don't think there is a better club to win trophies. I have already won three titles in my three years here and I want to win more. I feel Mumbai City FC is the best place for me to do that,” Vikram told the Mumbai City FC media team 

“The coach trusts young players and gives them opportunities and that's an important factor for me. I share a great relationship with the head coach as he is trusting me more and giving me more game time. He has also signed for two more years and that is also a factor in me wanting to stay,” he added. 

The 21-year-old felt the love of the Mumbai City FC fans at the Mumbai Football Arena for the first time and feels playing for the supporters gives him added motivation to do well. 

“It was a good feeling for me this season to play in front of the fans. I made my debut in Covid-19 times, so this was my first season in front of fans and it felt different,” he said. 

“You are motivated to do well for the fans and that definitely helped us as a club. In our last home game, lifting the Shield in front of the crowd and sharing it with them was very special,” he added. 

Looking back on his first three years at the club, Vikram has plenty of fond memories to cherish, none bigger than his full debut for the club. The youngster was thrust into the crucial match against ATK Mohun Bagan and scored a brace on debut as the Islanders won the match 5-1 in 2021. 

“I think my full debut against ATK Mohun Bagan was a very special moment for me. Making debut in the Hero ISL is a big achievement and scoring two goals in that match was even better,” he said. 

“My favourite goal in Mumbai CIty FC colours would be my last goal against Jamshedpur FC in the Hero Club Playoffs. It was a very important match for us as we had the taste of AFC Champions League football and we wanted to play in it again,” Vikram concluded.
