Nickname : ‘HONDA‘, due to his face resemblance with Japanese International, Keisuke Honda!
Bidyananda, a 19 year old talented lad from Manipur will be the secret weapon for AtléticoDeKolkata in ISL-3.!
Being a product of Sports Authority Of India, Manipur.. A lot has been expected from him in this years #ISL!
Singh, a defensive midfielder, was at the academy in the Qatari capital for a camp conducted by youth academy coaches from Barcelona, Manchester United and Inter Milan. By the end of his stint there, scouts from Barcelona had expressed an interest and have been following the youngster’s progress from there on! Impressive right? Well, Yes it is! 😉
He soon got the Indian (U-13) team call up in 2009 & some good string of performances marked that this lad is an emerging star for Indian Football!
Singh now trains at the All India Football Federation (AIFF) Academy in Navi Mumbai, which has kept him away from home for quite a few years!
