Former UEFA Europa League winner joins Odisha FC

30-year-old Pedro Martin signs for Odisha FC to bolster their attacking roster for the upcoming season.

Pedro was a part of Atletico Madrid’s Europa League winning season in 2011-12, where he made three appearances. He started his football career at Atletico Madrid’s academy and gradually climbed the ladders. Pedro’s first professional football experience happened with Atletico Madrid’s junior and reserve teams.

The Spanish forward has played 344 matches, scoring 71 goals and providing 15 assists. He has represented reputed Spanish teams CD Numancia and Celta De Vigo previously. The 6 feet 5-inch-tall striker will strengthen Odisha’s ambitions to increase their scoring tally. Last season, Odisha scored 31 goals, which ranks them seventh in the list of total goals scored by each team.

In another latest signing, Odisha FC added 25-year-old Spanish central midfielder, Saul Crespo Prieto. Saul joins Odisha FC, leaving his boyhood club, SD Ponfferadina, for whom he made 119 appearances.

Odisha FC is undergoing a revamp in their management and team led by David Villa’s agency DV7 Group. The fresh and experienced signings will be crucial in Odisha’s vision for the upcoming edition of Hero Indian Super League and similar tournaments.
