One love, YELLOW ARMY" he added.
Costa Nhamoinesu will join the Kerala Blasters FC squad as an experienced center-back with the most number of appearances at the Sparta Prague as a foreign player and will look to lead the backline and impart his knowledge to the young Indian defenders over the course of the season.
