Who is Shubho Paul, and why Mohun Bagan signed him?

Born in 4th March, 2004 in Salkia Howrah; Shubho was a part of Sudeva Delhi and was the only Indian player to feature in Bayern Munich World XI!

Position: Second Striker, Striker
Preferred Foot: Right
As per Football Scout, Shubho is a similar profile to Man City legend Sergio Kun Aguero!


– pace (Strong)
– acceleration (Very Strong)
– dynamism (Strong)
– finishing (Strong)
– flair (Strong)
– agility (Very Strong)
– off the ball movement (Very Strong)
– dribbling (Strong)
– technique (Strong)
– ball control (Strong)


– aerial ability
– lacks athleticism in challenges

But, for a 19 year old; there is plenty of improvement ahead him in this aspect.

Style of play:

– advanced striker
– versatile and mobile player able to play as a main striker, supporting striker and even on the wing if needed
– pacey striker with good technique on the ball, mobility, first touch, acceleration skills, fast direction shifts, short-dribbling, and good short-mid through passing ability
– superb off the ball intelligence to recognise spaces where to receive/run into
– always alert to capitalize on some opposite defensive mistakes
– great sense of positioning while receiving through balls
– excellent body balance, footwork, and changes of pace
– likes to come a bit deeper to get the ball
– likes to start his runs from deep or wings and attack space
– likes to shoot at every opportunity he gets
– good technique, footwork, and ball control in tight spaces
– difficult to knock off the ball thanks to his low center of gravity and close control
– very skillful at beating his markers and evading pressure
– known for his tricky off-the-ball movements in and around the opposite’ box
– extremely dangerous on the counter thanks to his electric pace and acceleration
– all-action and energetic

Here are two goals Shubho scored which showcases his immense talent:

Look at the Free-kick Shubho scored against Trau :

Shubho shown typical striker's instinct here. Like a Fox in the box against Arrows :

Another brilliant run from the dip to end it with a typical striker's finish! Shubho did it in the AFC U16 tournament against Bahrain :

Typically Shubho can be compared to a Dimitri Petratos or a Kun Aguero where he can be your second striker, will be in the right space at the right time and finish it off. With time on his side, he can develop his game and has a huge chance to become Sunil Chhetri's successor.

Mohun Bagan already have Fardin and Suhail Bhat in the reserves; with the addition of Shubho now; very very exciting times ahead. We would like to thank @FtblTalentScout for the thread. Hopefully, we have got a Gem in our hand.
