Lalrindika Ralte is one of India’s most talented attacking midfielders with a devastating left foot which he has used to score some stunning long range goals. His outstanding performances in the club circuit earned him a call-up to the senior national side as a teenager and has also figured in the national squad’s under-16, under-19 and under-23 campaigns. ‘Dika’ was with Churchill Brothers from 2009-12. In between, he was loaned out to Pailan Arrows. In 2012, the Cristiano Ronaldo and Deepika Padukone fan moved to East Bengal, making his debut in the Federation Cup semi-final against Churchill Brothers. He came on as a substitute and scored the only goal of the game in extra time. East Bengal went on to win the title.
Ralte made his presence felt for Mumbai City FC in Hero ISL 2014 by scoring a goal and providing two assists in his 14 appearances. The upcoming campaign with Atlético de Kolkata will be his second season in the Hero ISL.
