The new season of the Indian Super League (ISL) kicks off on October 7 with Kerala Blasters clashing with East Bengal in the curtain-raiser event. With COVID-19 having been lifted and the world returned to normalcy, teams will come back to their home stadiums after two years of exile.
After an eventful pre-season and transfer deals, the new-look teams have welcomed some great talent into the league. Let’s look at five players who could light up the ISL 2022-23 season.
Greg Stewart- Mumbai City FC
Greg Stewart was the best player of the ISL 2021-22 season at Jamshedpur City FC, after having scored 10 goals and assisted 10 more. Mumbai City FC however flexed their financial muscle and snatched Stewart from Jamshedpur FC for ISL 2022/23.
Their decision has already borne fruit after Stewart took the Mumbai-based team to the final of the Durand Cup 2022. He scored six goals in seven matches for Mumbai FC in the Durand Cup and looks in good touch for another successful stint in the ISL 2022-23 season.
