Shillong Lajong have re-signed former captain Aiborlang Khongjee for the I-League 2016-17 Season. The player has joined Shillong's training and will likely be available from their next home game on Saturday, 4th March, against East Bengal.
Khongjee, a defensive midfielder, last played for Mumbai City FC in the 2016 Indian Super League, helping the team reach the semi-finals.
Lajong, currently fourth in the I-League table, have won five out of their last seven matches, after a shaky start to the campaign which saw them lose their opening three games.
The 29-year-old has made several appearances for the Indian national Team and also won the SAFF Championship in 2015-16.
Khongjee, who began his career in Indian football at Lajong in 2005, is the second Lajong product after Rocus Lamare to play for the national team.
"Aibor's presence will surely help strengthen our young and talented defence. I hope that he will contribute to the team by mentoring our young players."
