ISL: Subrata Paul aims to keep clean slate

Mumbai: After being unbeaten in four previous games by not letting the ball past him into the net, India's No 1 shotstopper Subrata Paul is keen to stretch it to the fifth match for Mumbai City FC against FC Goa in Monday's Hero Indian Super League clash here.

The 27-year-old Paul last conceded a goal in a 1-5 loss against Chennaiyin FC, on October 28. Since then, Paul has denied Kerala Blasters in two matches from scoring a goal while also keeping out Goa and Delhi Dynamos.

Paul, who was dubbed the 'Indian Spiderman' by the South Korean media due to his athleticism during the 2011 Asian Cup, is the only goalkeeper to have played each and every minute of his team's ISL campaign.

A graduate from the renowned Tata Football Academy, his unrelenting desire to play abroad resulted in a six-month stint in Denmark earlier this year.

Paul plied his trade in the Danish Superliga (Denmark's topmost football league) with FC Vestsjaelland.

Nearly five months after becoming ISL's first-ever draft pick, Paul has already repaid the faith Mumbai placed in him.
