Raphael Augusto
Born: 6 March 1991, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Joined BFC: 24 August 2019

A two-time winner of the Indian Super League, Raphael Augusto will find it easy to blend into the Blues’ dressing room. Born in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, Augusto came through the youth ranks of Fluminense and the Brazilian outfit remained his parent club for over ten years, where a string of loan spells saw him play at various clubs in USA and Poland. A strong and imposing presence in midfield, with his hold-up play and close control, Augusto won the Indian Super League in 2015 and 2018 with Chennaiyin FC, scoring against Bengaluru in the latter final at the Fortress. Having signed with the Blues on a two-year deal, the Brazilian will look to add some samba to the Bengaluru attack, joining forces with Erik Paartalu, Dimas Delgado and Eugeneson Lyngdoh in midfield.
