Bhubaneswar: Odisha FC forward Aridane Santana will be out of the remainder of the ongoing Hero Indian Super League (ISL) season due to an injury in the left foot.
Aridane scored the maximum number of goals for the club in the sixth season of the league. He is currently in the second position on the list of top goalscorers with a total of nine goals from 14 matches.
For all the goals, all the assists, all the magical moments and all the heart our Big Number 9 has shown this season…we are grateful. He leaves with our best wishes.

Odisha FC owner Mr. Rohan Sharma expressed, “Aridane is a beast who never stopped fighting for the club. As much as we will miss Aridane and his fantastic striking abilities, we will secure a Top 4 spot and not give up as Aridane never did. On behalf of the club, I wish him a speedy recovery.”
Speaking on this, OFC Head Coach Mr. Josep Gombau said, “It is a big loss as we will not have Aridane for the remaining matches. I want to congratulate Aridane and be grateful to him for all his amazing job for the club this season inside and outside the pitch. Unfortunately, he has this injury and we lost his service for our upcoming games.”
