It should be noted that Regan, who is usually a resilient presence on the right wing, had joined the club ahead of the 2020-21 season in Goa.

My ambition is to help club lift third ISL trophy, says Regan

"First of all I would like to thank the Chennaiyin family for believing in me. I feel proud to be part of one of the most successful teams in the country," Reagan was quoted saying in a media release on Friday.

"I believe I contributed well and improved as a player in my first season. My ambition now is to help the club lift their third ISL trophy, and the first of my career," he added.

Began his career at Royal Wahingdoh FC

Reagan hails from Manipur and began his footballing career at Royal Wahingdoh FC in the I-League in 2012. He spent three years at the Shillong club and then signed a deal with the NorthEast United FC where he stayed for five years.

The 30-year-old is known for his composure in defence and proved to be a great asset for Chennaiyin FC in their campaign last season. Notably, the Chennai-based club managed six clean sheets in their 18 games in 2020-21 season with Reagan playing a crucial role in all of them. Moreover, he also made one assist while coming close to scoring on quite a few occasions.
