Northeast United FC have picked up proven talents not only from other ISL teams to add to their sure-fire arsenal, but also made some significant loans from I-League clubs. Which makes the Highlanders' imports an interesting bunch.
OF ALL THE ISL franchises, NorthEast United sort of stood out from the get-go by their insistance on bringing in local talents.
NORTHEAST UNITED HAVE made quick work of finding themselves a new head coach after their previous appointment, Sergio Farias, departed the franchise even before the pre-season began. And the replacement they have brought in isn't half bad either. This time they have opted for 63 year old Portuguese veteran coach Eduardo Manuel Martinho Braganza de Vingada, aka Nelo Vingada.
NORTHEAST UNITED have finally spoken up about the departure of their head coach Sergio Farias who was hired by the franchise for the 2016 edition of ISL only weeks ago. And it's sort of a short statement.
SERGIO FARIAS, the newly appointed coach at NorthEast United, has gone and become the coach of a Thai club Suphanburi FC, and it seems this happened by design.
NORTHEAST UNITED FC have retained their star striker Nico Velez for the upcoming ISL season. The Argentine was their top goal scorer for NEUFC last season.
NORTHEAST UNITED FC have acquired Urugayan striker, Sasha Aneff from Slovenian side, NK Domzale ahead of the third edition of the Indian Super League (ISL).
NORTHEAST UNITED FC are on a signing spree, they are in full force to making their team stronger for the upcoming season. They began by signing a new coach and now making their playing 11 strong.
AFTER HOSTING THE Federation Cup final, the AFC Cup home games of Mohun Bagan and the upcoming Asian Cup qualifiers playoff match between India and Laos, the Indira Gandhi Stadium in Guwahati will once again get to take the centre-stage in Indian football as it gears up to host yet another showpiece event: the opening game of ISL 2016.

The #Highlanders absolutely flayed Durban based side #CherriansFC on an extremely cold, chilly and rainy night at the People's Park stadia yesterday. This was the 4th pre-season game played by #NEUFC. #NicolasVelez scored two to add to his fearsome reputation, while #FrancisDadzie also added to his tally. The prodigal #AlenDeory scored a sublime goal while Boithang Haokip opened his account on this pre-season tour. Mid-field combatant #KondwaniMtonga also guided a header home to add gloss to a comprehensive rout on the night. What a utterly irrepressible performance! #NEUFC #PowerOf8 #8States1United #Preseason #Durban
