Ayush Chhetri joined FC Goa in the summer of 2022 after impressing for Aizawl FC in the I-League.
Born in the state of Mizoram, Chhetri started playing football at the very young age of five. He rose to prominence for the first time when he got selected to Aizawl FC’s U15 and U18 teams for the Hero Youth League.
Consistent performances with the Mizoram-based club’s youth sides helped him earn a promotion to the first team and earlier last year in the 2021-22 season, he was handed his debut in the I-League.
The 19-year-old went on to make 10 appearances for Aizawl FC in I-League 2021-22. On April 1 this year, the midfielder scored his maiden league goal against eventual champions Gokulam Kerala, and followed that up with strikes against NEROCA FC and Sudeva Delhi FC.
In a short span of time, Ayush Chhetri has proven his abilities as a player who can make an impact on both ends of the pitch.
