Lenny Rodrigues has established himself as the pivot of the senior Indian team and provided the backbone to his former club Churchill Brothers which went on a title-collecting spree during the lanky defensive midfielder’s six-year stint at the club. His forte is his range of passing skills of both the short and long varieties, which help make a seamless transition from defence to attack. His deft tackling and interceptions also help nip many an opposition attack in the bud. Starting off as a striker, Rodrigues began his career at the Salgaocar academy. But he refused a contract from Salgaocar to join Churchill Brothers, his favourite boyhood club, in 2008. The rest, as they say, is history. He joined Mohun Bagan at the start of the 2015/16 Hero I-League campaign and has been a part of FC Pune City since Hero ISL 2014. Rodrigues has made 19 appearances for the Stallions heading into the third edition.
