Three years back, it was a tough decision for Ishaan Pandita to make as he was to choose between Football and Books and he laced up and took his call to Spain. "It was a tough 3 years in Spain, but at the end all of it was worth it!" says Pandita who is super thrilled to join Spain's top league and to play under Leganes in La Liga and he is the first Indian to do so. The city is located on the outskirts of Madrid and is currently placed 11th in the league table.

 With number 50 on his back, he was handed the jersey by club's owner Felipe Moreno but will start playing along the junior team to get more exposure. This guy with Kashmiri roots had an eight month spell playing along the junior team of Almeria in the second division.

Academy's director Jorge Broto Benavente said that he was impressed by this raw talent, his physical attributes and his ability to score golas. He further added that it's too early for him to get a call from the main team as this rough diamond needs to be polished. He is presently signed for an year long contract.
