Devendra Murgaonkar

Devendra Murgaonkar became a Gaur in October 202, joining from Salgaocar after FC Goa agreed on an undisclosed transfer fee for the forward.

The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a 3-year contract with the reigning champions of the ISL League Winners Shield after earning rave reviews for his performances in the Goa Pro League over the last couple of seasons.

Having first burst on to the scene in the 2017/18 season, the youngster used the 2018/19 season as his unofficial coming-of-age party, scoring a league-high 20 goals in the Goa Pro League (GPL). He followed that up with 9 goals in the pandemic-curtailed 2019/20 season of the GPL. 

The youngster has also been part of Goa’s Santosh Trophy teams these past two seasons.

Devendra earlier became the third new Goan player to join the 1st team after Leander D’Cunha was promoted from the Developmental Team and Sanson Pereira (also from Salgaocar) joined the Gaurs earlier as a free agent. 

Murgaonkar displayed impressive scoring abilities in the 2021 Durand Cup, bagging five goals to his name in six appearnces in the competition.
