In February, Hume suffered a knee injury that ruled him out of action for the rest of season. Thereafter he has undergone a surgery on his right knee and has been doing his rehabilitation in India and the UK.
Commenting on the signing, FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel said, “Iain Hume will continue his rehab under the supervision of our medical team and train with the team during the preseason.
“If everything goes as planned, we estimate him to be back in 12- 14 weeks’ time. Iain is a highly motivated athlete and we are sure that he will get back to his previous best and play an important role for us this season.”
Hume said, “It wasn’t a very tough decision to make, to return to the ISL and join FC Pune City if I’m honest. From the other side, I’ve always admired the top-class facilities at the training ground and the stadium and the way the club is professionally run.
