Delhi Dynamos have snapped up the services of Dutch defender Sergio Greene after a host of other high profile signings have been added to strengthen the squad.
The announcement of the former Feyenoord signing came at the Bravida Arena, while the team was playing their second friendly, of their pre-season tour, against BK Hacken. The 33-year-old defender also played some part in the second half of their 7-2 defeat which was live streamed on the club's newly launched website.
Versatility is Greene’s strong trait, with the Dutchman being easily adaptive to any playing position in the back four and is a strong reader of the game. The Dutch defender’s neat footwork and drives up the pitch will be a good option for Roberto Carlos to have at his disposal.
“He is a young player who is willing to learn and grow as a player. His speed will help us a lot as a team and I am very happy about his signing," said Carlos.
Greene started his youth career at Ajax and moved to Eredevisie giants Feyenoord, Vitesse and Haarlem. He was also a member of the Netherlands U-16, U-21 football teams and was playing at Cyprus club Othellos Athienou F.C.
“Serginho is a great addition to team. Roberto was convinced that he was the right man to fill the missing position. He also made a great presentation in Braveda arena where he played like a lion,” said Dynamos President, Prashant Agarwal.
