JSW Sports have added versatile striker and attacking midfielder John Menyongar to their squad, the club announced on Saturday.

My main focus will be to train well and have a successful season,” said Menyongar on signing the deal.

Menyongar, who has scored more than 100 professional goals, has a decade of experience with clubs in America and has even had the legendary Liberian striker George Weah for a teammate in national colours.

“John is the kind of player who can be expected to create goal scoring chances as well as score. He is bound to bring a lot to the team,” said Pradhyum Reddy, assistant coach at JSW Sports.
