“I am excited to be joining Odisha FC and I hope I can help the club compete for titles & trophies and hopefully play in AFC very soon. Looking forward to joining Ama Team,” Odisha FC quoted Ravi.

Odisha FC’s President Rohan Sharma said, “I am happy to have Ravi join our squad. He is a goalkeeper with a lot of experience and can give good competition to Arsh (Arshdeep Singh) and Kamaljit.”
