ISL 2020-21: Kerala Blasters retires #21 jersey as Sandesh Jhingan departs


As reported, Indian Super League (ISL) outfit Kerala Blasters and Indian national football team defender Sandesh Jhingan have mutually parted ways, the club announced on Thursday.

As a mark of respect and to pay tribute to Jhingan’s contribution over the years, the Blasters have decided to permanently retire his jersey number 21.

“Sandesh leaves our family, to pursue fresh challenges with nothing but love and respect from the entire KBFC community. Growing together over the past 6 years and moulding him into one of the finest center backs to represent our country, has been a proud moment for the club. We are honoured to be a part of and support his journey so far,” the club stated.

“We wish our ‘Wall’ the very best for his upcoming challenges and look forward to him reaching newer heights. Once a Blaster, always a Blaster.”

Considered as one of the best in his position in the country, Jhingan joined the Blasters before the first edition of the ISL. With time, he became a fan-favourite in Kerala and was also made captain during his stint.

The 26-year-old has played 76 ISL matches for Blasters and holds the record for having played the most number of games for the Yellow Army.
