Kerala Blasters FC have started their pre-season training ahead of what promises to be an exciting 2023/24 campaign. Ivan Vukomanovic and his coaching team are leading the upcoming Durand Cup campaign starting in August as the immediate next target.
The first set of players and staff arrived in Kochi on Monday with more player arrivals following over the week and the team commenced their training sessions on Thursday.
Defender Sandeep Singh currently on a comeback trail will be training again with the squad following his absence due to an ankle injury that kept him out of action towards the end of last season, while midfielder Danish Farooq is all set to participate in his first full preseason with the Club since joining the Blasters in January 2023.
While foreigners Adrian Luna & Dimitrios Diamantakos joined midweek after their summer break and started to hit the ground running, defender Marko Leskovic is expected to join next week after being granted an extended time due to personal reasons.
New signings Prabir Das, Jaushua Sotirio, and Naocha Singh have begun their official initiation into the Blasters family during the camp as they look to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings.
New signing Pritam Kotal is expected to join the squad next week due to extended commitments with the national team over the summer. New faces from Kerala Blasters Academy, including Ajsal, Jaseen, Yoheinba, and Roshan, all of whom will be eager to impress, have joined the team.
