Odisha FC Get Bolstered by Signing Puitea on 3-Year Deal

Indian Super League (ISL) outfit Odisha FC on Wednesday announced that they have secured the services of Lalthathanga Khawlhring, better known as Puitea.

The midfielder joins the Juggernauts on a three-year deal from Mohun Bagan Super Giant.

The Mizoram-born midfielder started his career with Bethlehem Vengthlang before securing a move to the DSK Shivajians Academy. Puitea was awarded the “Best Midfielder” in the Mizoram Premier League for the 2015-16 season.

In 2017, Northeast United FC secured the services of the talented midfielder on a three-year deal but was loaned out to Aizawl FC for the entirety of the season. Puitea quickly became a mainstay for Aizawl as he finished the season with a goal to his name.

Eventually, he returned to the Highlanders the following season and debuted against the Gaurs. Puitea made a total of 29 appearances for NEUFC.

A move to Kerala Blasters was on the cards for Puitea where he inked a 3-year deal with the club. He made his debut and announced himself by scoring his first Hero ISL goal against the Blues after coming on as a substitute in the 46th minute.

The midfielder was pivotal for the Blasters reaching the ISL finals forming a solid partnership with Jeakson Singh.

Puitea joins the Kalinga Warriors on the back of winning the ISL 2022-23 with Mohun Bagan Super Giant.
