Bengaluru loan striker Norales to Ozone FC

Bengaluru, Feb 3: I-League football champions Bengaluru FC on Friday loaned Honduran striker Roby Norales to second division side Ozone FC till the end of the season.

The 26-year-old joined Bengaluru a game into the I-League season. But he failed to fit into the plans of coach Albert Roca, prompting the club to trigger a move to fellow-Bengaluru side Ozone FC.

Norales scored on his BFC debut against Cheni City FC. He replaced Ozone striker Cornell Glenn who suffered a fractured arm, ruling him out for the rest of the club’s campaign.

“After a month of working closely with Roby, the staff felt that he doesn’t fit into the team’s plans. The club spoke with the player and both agreed that it would be best to loan him out to a club where he would get more playing time,” said BFC COO Mustafa Ghouse.

“Roby has been a thorough professiol and we wish him the best of luck on his new stint.” IANS
