Pedro Martin joins Odisha FC for 22/23
The Spanish striker has made over 340 appearances across several divisions in his home country. He has made 126 appearances in La Liga 2, 12 in the Copa del Rey and three in the Europa League. As a result, he has a wealth of experience that he can bring to the table from his time in Spain.
Osama Malik, Saul Crespo, and Carlos Delgado have already joined the club alongside Mauricio. As a result, the Warriors are close to wrapping up their foreigner spots for the coming season.
They were able to pull off an impressive season in 2022, finishing ahead of Mumbai City FC, Bengaluru FC and NorthEast United. However, their lack of squad depth showed throughout the season. And their recent transfer activity shows that they are aware of their problems.
