When asked about the reason for joining Minerva Punjab FC he replied “I’ve seen Minerva Punjab FC grow over the last two years and they have only gone from strength to strength. It has provided a platform for youngsters to compete at the highest level and it will be a great learning curve for me personally.”

Everyone dreams of donning the national team colors and Nikhil is no different. His main target is to break into the India U-23 as soon as possible.

The Mumbai born player was ecstatic about the chances of the club playing in the AFC Champions league this season and is raring to go.
The two footed versatile wingman is hopeful of making his debut in the top flight this season with the Warriors.
Everyone at the club would like to wish him all the best for the upcoming season.
