Subrata sets out for trails for Vancouver Whitecaps
Panaji: Following fellow team mate Sunil
Chhetri`s footsteps, Subrata Paul is now on his way to try his
luck in the MLS.
For the last couple of months, the talks have been on
of his trials but the goalkeeper couldn`t travel due to an
injury and that Pune FC had a large chunk of matches remaining
in the I-League.
Vancouver Whitecaps play their trade in the USSF
Division Two, the second tier of American and Canadian soccer
The club has been granted an opportunity to play in
the MLS starting next season.
Confirming the news of his trial, Subrata Pauls,
agent Arvind Narayan said, "He left for his trials early on
Tuesday which shall last for about six days."
If all clicks well, Subrata may well play in the
MLS. Vancouver Whitecaps, currently coached by former Iceland
International striker Teitur Thordarson, already has two
goalkeepers on their roster.
However, neither of the goalkeepers in the current
squad have experience of playing for the national team like
Subrata Paul has.
