Indian Super League team FC Pune City has bolstered its midfield by re-signing Jonatan Lucca for the 2017-18 season. The 23-year-old represented Pune last season, making 14 appearances for the team.

Speaking on bringing back the midfielder, FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel said, “Lucca is a proven performer and a fan favourite too. He played close to 90 minutes in each of the games last season. Young and dynamic, Jonathan feels at home in Pune and believes he can best express himself as a player at FC Pune City.”

The youngster began his career with local Brazilian club Internacional before catching the eye of AS Roma. In his three-year stint with the Giallorossi, the midfielder scored nine goals from 32 games.

Expressing his excitement, Lucca said, “At FC Pune City, without a doubt, I got one of my best playing experiences. The team this season has gathered some quality signings and I am sure donning the Orange and Purple will only add further value to my career. Orange Army, here I come.”
