Former Portugal and Barcelona winger Simao Sabrosa has been named as marquee player of NorthEast United FC for the second season of the Indian Super League (ISL) which begins in October.
2004 UEFA Euro finalist Sabrosa -- a teammate of Luis Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo -- will don the No. 20 jersey.
"I'm looking forward to the new challenge. The ISL has brought football in India to everybody's attention and I cannot wait to participate in it," Sabrosa was quoted in The Times of India.
