Shillong Lajong have re-signed Penn Orji for the upcoming I-League season

North East ILeague outfit Shillong Lajong Football Club have re-signed the versatile midfieder Penn Orji for the forthcoming Hero I-League season. With the addition of Penn Orji, Lajong is all set to play their first match against Mumbai FC on the 10th January at the JN Stadium at 4:30pm.

Penn Orji is one of the most successful Nigerian Footballer and has been playing in India for 7 years with Clubs likes JCT, East Bengal, Mohammedan Sporting including ISL Season 1 Finalist Kerela Blasters FC. 

In his stint with Lajong last season, Penn played a significant role and was also one of the fittest players in the squad. The Coaching Staff and Management understood the importance of having a player with a considerable amount of experience in the I-League and hence, the Club signed him for the second consecutive year.

Speaking to Head Coach Thangboi Singto, he said,

“Penn is a player with good I-League experience. He performed really well in all the matches when he joined last year. We needed someone of his calibre in central midfield. He contributes a lot both in attack and defence. We expect him to lead from the middle, front and back. And we welcome him back to the home of Lajong.”
