I am really excited to wear the Jamshedpur FC jersey and play for the club.
I would want to give the best for my team and for the fans. I am happy to be a part of the Jamshedpur FC family.
I have seen the fans and I want to say that you guys are amazing. Please keep supporting us the way you have been. Without your support it’s not possible to achieve the goals for the club.Jitendra Singh
Jitendra joins us with immense pedigree behind him. We are really excited to have him in our ranks.
He is young and his development was closely monitored by our recruitment team. His ability to read the game and movements with and without the ball has impressed us a lot.
We welcome him to the family of Jamshedpur FC.Mukul Choudhari, CEO, Jamshedpur FC
