However, all of that could take a 360 degree turn as the ISL team is making waves in Indian football news and ISL transfer news by signing a new bunch of players. As reported in Indian football latest news, NorthEast United FC (NEUFC) completed their quota of seven foreign signings for the ISL 2018-19 season when they roped in the Uruguayan midfielder Federico Gallego.
The 28-year-old will be a great option for NorthEast United FC coach Eelco Schattorie in the middle of the park, along with other foreign midfield maestros such as Jose David Leudo and Augustine Okrah, who also made waves in ISL transfer news when they were acquired by the Highlanders.

Indian football latest news: Federico Gallego has played for many clubs, including Premier League giants Liverpool
Federico Gallego had started his professional footballing career at Sud América, which is a club from his native region in Uruguay. His presence at NEUFC will certainly be a boon for the Indian football players present in the ISL team, as the 28-year-old has made 67 appearances over three years back home at Sud America.
That was not all that Gallego had in store, as after three years at Sud America he shifted to Guatemala to play for Comunicaciones Fútbol Club. After spending a season at Guatemala, Federico was roped in by the Premier League giants Liverpool FC, where he spent the 2017 season making 11 appearances.
As reported in Indian football latest news and ISL transfer news by the ISL, the stint with NorthEast United FC for ISL 2018-19 season is going to be Federico Gallego’s first tryst in Asia and especially India football. There is no doubt that the Uruguayan midfielder would be excited to see what the top-tier of India football has to offer.
NEUFC head coach Eelco Schattorie is building a squad which is going to be studded with both, young blood and experience, in an attempt to wipe out all the ills that had marred the ISL team’s performance in the last edition of ISL football. Expect Schattorie and Gallego, among others players, to make waves in Indian football news owing to their revolutionised performance in the ISL 2018-19 season.
