Chencho had joined Bengaluru from Minerva Punjab FC at the beginning of the Indian Super League (ISL) 2018-19 season. Despite failing to get a lot of game time in the initial stages of the campaign, an injury to star striker Miku paved the way for Chencho to play a part in Carles Cuadrat’s setup.

He made 9 appearances for Bengaluru this season, mostly from the bench, and pitched in with two very important goals. Incidentally, both his goals came against NorthEast in two different matches.

In Bengaluru’s away tie against the Highlanders back in December, Chencho came off the bench to rescue a point for his team with a spectacular late equaliser in Guwahati. In the reverse fixture on Wednesday, the 22-year-old came on as a substitute to haunt the Highlanders once more, as his 71st-minute strike eventually sealed a tough victory for Bengaluru.

Bengaluru FC has got less than 24 hours to sign the replacement for Chencho as after that, the January transfer window would be shut down.
