KOHIMA — The NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) on Monday announced the signing of Australian striker Tomi Juric on a free transfer.

Juric was part of the Australian squad in the FIFA World Cup 2018 and the Asian Cup winning squad in 2015. He has had successful stints across Europe and Asia, notably at Western Sydney Wanders, where he won the AFC Champions League, FC Luzern, Roda JC, and more recently, Melbourne Victory.

Excited about the new challenge, Juric expressed his commitment to the team’s goals. “I’m eager to contribute to NorthEast United’s journey in the Indian Super League. I am ready to help the team achieve its goals for the season. It’s a new challenge, and I am committed to giving my all for the fans and the club,” he said.

NEUFC head coach Juan Pedro Benali said Tomi is a top-class player with a lot of experience playing at the highest level. “His achievements, along with his goal-scoring ability, make him a valuable addition to our squad. We believe his presence will be a game changer,” the coach added.
