ISL 2017: Five Kerala Blasters players to watch out for.


The forthcoming edition of cash-rich Indian Super League is all set to turn into action on November 17 as Kerala Blasters go up against arch-rivals ATK, with revenge in mind.

Kerala Blasters’ squad has been revamped this time, and the team looks more lethal with the likes of former Manchester United stars like Dimitar Berbatov and Wes Brown. Unlike the other editions, Kerala Blasters has the most star-studded side in the ISL 4, and this obvious fact will force Kerala Blasters to perform a dazzling display this time.

Let’s take a look at the 5 players to watch out for in their squad.


#5 Iain Hume

Indian Super League’s all time top-scorer, the Canadian talisman Iain Hume’s return back to Kochi does mean that the Kerala Blasters are all set to edge past their previous year performance. Once a star of the Yellow Army, ‘Humettan’ of Kerala Blasters has had an incredible jaunt with this league so far, and will look to add more to it this time.

Known for his pace and finishing ability, Iain Hume will adjoin Dimitar Berbatov and CK Vineeth to provide the side with the fatal attacks.


#4 CK Vineeth

CK Vineeth was the hero of Kerala Blasters in the third edition. His pace, creativity and final touches were second to none in the ISL. It was his presence, which helped the floundering Kerala Blasters rebound back to the tournament and finish as the runners-up.

Kerala Blasters will again rely on CK Vineeth’s talent, and his co-ordination with Berbatov will be one to watch out for.

Blasters#3 Wes Brown

The former Manchester United defensive stalwart, Wes Brown will tower the defense of Kerala Blasters this time. A player, who had his time at the Theatre of Dreams, Wes comes with the experience he had in the biggest stages of World Football. Arguably one of the best signings of the league, Wes will look to keep the defense firm and to keep the attackers at its bay. Known for his physique, and creativity, Wes could captain the Rene Meulensteen side.

#2 Dimitar Berbatov

The man with the golden touch, Dimitar Berbatov is the star of this league, and his arrival to the Yellow Army has already bolstered its group of attackers. A player who can inspire the entire Indian football fraternity, Dimitar Berbatov will look to take ISL by the storm, and is all set to become the next legend of Indian Super League.


#1 Sandesh Jhingan.

A warrior who doesn’t need any introduction, the growth of ISL and Sandesh Jhingan are in the same direction. Came into this cash rich league as a thriving Indian defender, Sandesh Jhingan has grown from just an Indian Footballer to one of the established face of it.

Known for his aggressiveness at the back, Sandesh Jhingan is an attacking defender who can score goals with aplomb. Sandesh Jhingan could be the perfect partner for Wes Brown, and what this attacking defensive duo can do is to keep the defense robust, and to make the attackers vigorous.
