Rahul Bheke has extended his contact at Mumbai FC for another season after impressing with his performances last season.

Mumbai FC head coach Khalid Jamil confirmed this news, “Yes, Rahul is going to be a Mumbai FC player next season. It was a very easy decision. I was highly impressed with his performances and he shows a lot of intent in training. His dedication to football helps him and the team to perform even better. He is still only 23 and already has a good amount of I-League experience.”

Bheke, who made eight appearances for Mumbai FC last season, said, “I was really happy when Mumbai FC decided to sign me in January last season.
