"Keenan is a very good player and will bring much needed versatility to our back line," a media release quoted FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel as saying. "He has a title-winning run under his belt with his previous club, which means he comes with the right mentality which matters a lot too," Modwel added.

Almeida began his professional career in Goa, playing for state-based outfits Salgaocar and Sporting Clube De Goa before joining FC Goa in 2015 for the ISL.  After spending two seasons with the Gaurs, Almeida was picked by Chennaiyin FC in the 2017-18 ISL draft.

Excited to join FC Pune City, Almeida said, "The club approached with a definite plan for me, something that I could immediately connect with. Getting good playing time is crucial for any player and that's what I will be looking forward to with FC Pune City.
