Former Indian Super League champions, Bengaluru FC, have announced the signing of English striker Curtis Main on a one-year deal. Main, who previously played for St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership, will be joining Bengaluru FC for the upcoming season. The signing of Main is expected to strengthen Bengaluru FC’s attacking options and contribute to their quest for success in the Indian Super League.
Main began his youth career at Sunderland AFC and developed his skills in the Darlington FC Academy. He expressed his excitement about joining Bengaluru FC and building on the success that the team has achieved under their manager. Main, who hails from South Shields, holds the distinction of being the youngest player to represent Darlington when he made a substitute appearance at the age of 15 years and 318 days.
Throughout his professional journey, Main has played for clubs such as Middlesbrough, Doncaster Rovers, Portsmouth, and Motherwell. His most recent experience in Scottish football was with St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership before securing a one-year deal with Bengaluru FC in the Indian Super League.
Bengaluru FC’s head coach, Simon Grayson, praised Main for his hard work and contribution to his previous clubs. He described Main as a whole-hearted striker with good hold-up play, who will be a valuable asset to Bengaluru FC.
Main’s signing comes after the arrival of Montenegrin centre-back Slavko Damjanovic, making him Bengaluru FC’s second foreign signing of the transfer window. This demonstrates the club’s commitment to strengthening their squad for the upcoming season.
