BFC sign Kim, Doungel

Bengaluru FC on Wednesday announced the signings of strikers Kim Seng-Yong and Seiminlen Doungel, adding to their ammunition just three days after the 2014-15 I-League season climaxed in an agonising defeat for them.

North Korean Kim is no stranger to Indian football having turned out for Rangdajied United before switching to Royal Wahingdoh last season where he played a key role in the club’s third place finish. A clinical finisher with an impressive aerial prowess, Kim will replace Australian striker Sean Rooney whose contract with the Blues has expired.

“I am extremely happy to have signed for Bengaluru FC. I consider myself lucky to have been given a chance to play for a club like this,” said Kim who is on a one-year deal with the club having the choice to extend it.

“They have done an amazing job on and off the pitch over the past two years. I am looking forward to playing under the guidance of Ashley Westwood and the rest of the staff, and I will do my best to contribute towards the team's success on all fronts.”

The 21-year-old Doungel, who has signed a two-year deal, is a former East Bengal and Shillong Lajong striker. “It makes me happy to say that I am part of Bengaluru FC. It’s a club where I know I will improve as a player and I cannot wait to be a part of wonderful things the club does,” said the Manipuri.
