In a big blow to FC Goa, defender Sandesh Jhingan has been ruled out for the remainder of the Indian Super League (ISL) season 2023-24, the club confirmed in a statement on Tuesday.

Jhingan suffered an injury to his right knee while playing India's third and final AFC Asian Cup Group B match against Syria in Qatar earlier this month.

Following the injury, Sandesh has undergone a thorough series of examinations and the initial indications suggest a period of rest from competitive play will be necessary for his complete recovery.

The club is currently in the process of consulting with medical professionals to determine the most effective course of action for his rehabilitation.

"During this challenging time, FC Goa remains steadfast in its commitment to supporting Sandesh in his recovery journey. The Club will collaborate closely with medical experts to devise a tailored rehabilitation plan that addresses the player’s specific needs, with the ultimate aim of facilitating his return to peak physical fitness," said the club in the statement.

It will come as a big blow for the Goan club who are placed second in the ISL points table behind Kerala Blasters, playing two matches less than the Blasters.

FC Goa will resume its ISL campaign against Hyderabad FC in an away game on February 1.
