Moirangthem Gouramangi Singh is an Indian professional association football player who plays as a center back for Chennaiyin FC team.

Club career

A product of the Tata Football Academy, he has plied his trade with many clubs in the country including Dempo SC and Churchill Brothers. While at Dempo, Singh won the Federation Cup and the National Football League. Gouramangi is one of the tallest players in the Indian national team and possesses an ability to head the ball strongly especially in set piece situations and is also effective in tackling.[2]

Over the course of his professional career, Singh has won nearly every club trophy in India including the National Football League (which was replaced by the I-League) and the Federation Cup with Mahindra United in 2005/2006 & the I-League in 2009. Singh was also voted best defender in the I-League for the 2008/09 season.[3]

In 2010, Gouramangi was called upon by Melbourne Heart[4] for a trial, which despite reportedly impressing Heart staff, was unsuccessful. It was mutually decided that Gouramangi would not get first opportunities in presence of other stars.[5]

Churchill Brothers

Singh started the 2010–11 I-League season with Churchill Brothers SC on 29 January 2011.

Rangdajied United

On 20 November 2013, despite earlier rejecting ISL signed players, Rangdajied United F.C. of the I-League agreed to sign Gouramangi on as well as Subrata Pal, Sandesh Jhingan, Manandeep Singh, and Tomba Singh.[6]

He made his debut in the I-League on 22 November 2013 against Shillong Lajong F.C. at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Shillong in which he played the whole match as Rangdajied drew the match 1–1.[7]


In the fall of 2014 Gouramangi singh joined Chennaiyin FC in the inaugural season of Indian Super League,[8][9] joining the likes of Marco Materazzi.[10]

International career

Gouramangi first rose to prominence when he captained the winning Indian team (Under 18) at the Ian Rush Trophy in 2003. He played in the Olympic qualifiers for the Indian U-23 team where his defending allowed India to earn an unlikely 1–1 draw with the Iraq U-23 team. In 2006, Singh made his debut for India and was a vital member of the Indian team that won the Nehru Cup International Football Tournament 2007 beating Syria.[11] He was also an important part of the victorious India team at the 2008 AFC Challenge Cup.[12] After joining the national team in 2007, Gouramangi has been a vital player in coach Houghton's side.[2] On 28 July 2011 Singh scored an important goal for India in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the United Arab Emirates but it did not help as India were knocked out 5–2 on aggregate. Singh nodded home from a Clifford Miranda free kick with rival goalkeeper Ngome Lawrence out of his line. He scored his 6th goal for India in Final of 2012 Nehru Cup against Cameroon.
