Indian Super League (ISL) side FC Goa's goalkeeper, Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem has revealed that his primary aim is to become a "mainstay" for the Gaurs and win titles like the ISL, Durand Cup and Super Cup among others with them.

Dheeraj has established himself as one of the best young goalkeepers in the country, and despite being only 21-years-old he has proved to be one of the best in the business in India. The youngster recently created history when he became the first Indian to feature in the AFC Champions League Team of the tournament.

The youngster from Manipur has already set goals for himself and he is gearing to achieving that for himself.

“To become a mainstay at FC Goa and winning titles such as the ISL, Durand Cup and Super Cup among others is one of my main objectives right now. Apart from that, I would also like to break into the playing XI for India and become a regular for them as well. In the next five years, I hope to achieve all this and establish myself as one of the best goalkeepers in the country," he said in an interview.

Dheeraj was the standout performer for India in the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup and will no doubt look to build on that and establish himself as a key part of the India senior squad going forward.
