Manisha Kalyan is set to become the first Indian to play in the UEFA Women’s Champions League after the 20-year-old forward signed a two-year deal with Cypriot club Apollon Ladies.
Manisha, who won two Indian Women’s League titles (2019-20, 21-22) with Gokulam Kerala, is also an India international with 17 caps and four goals to her name.
Apollon Ladies will take on Latvia’s Rigas FS in a two-legged semifinal qualifying round on August 18 and 21. If they beat Rigas, they will have to face one of FC Zurich or Klaksvíkar Ítróttarfelag to progress into the group stage of the competition.
