Ethiopian striker Fikru Teferra Lemessa joined training with the Mohammedan Sporting Club first team on Tuesday, as the Biswajit Bhattacharya coached side prepares for their upcoming Second Division League Preliminary Round Group C fixture against TRAU FC at Imphal, Manipur.

Fikru, after spending some time at gym, trained separately from his teammates with physical trainer Rudra Pritam Roy at Mohammedan Sporting Club Ground having arrived in the city this past Saturday.

The 32-year-old, scorer of the first goal in Indian Super League (ISL) history, signed for Mohammedan Sporting Club during January transfer window and arguably the biggest name plying his trade in Second Division League this season.
