Kerala Blasters FC are happy to announce a three-year extension for left-back Yondrembem Denechandra.

Denechandra, who started his football career at the age of 10 playing at a local stadium, got his first taste of professional football with the Manipur football team in the youth nationals. Following brief stints at Mohun Bagan A.C. and the Sambhalpur Academy in Odisha, he joined the Pune F.C. Academy with whom he won the U19 I-League twice. Denechandra later featured regularly for Hero I-League teams like Churchill Brothers, Neroca and TRAU before joining the Blasters.
“I had a very good experience with KBFC in my first season despite the difficult conditions. I am sure we will have a much-improved season [in 2021-22] and I am very happy to have extended my contract with the club. Looking forward to meeting the great fan base of the club soon! Stay safe at home,” said Denechandra.
“Denechandra is physically strong, a solid player for Hero ISL. He needs to improve some angles in his game but he showed a lot of potential last season. I want him to keep wishing to improve and we are here to support him through his journey,” said Karolis Skinkys, Sporting Director at Kerala Blasters FC.
