Mumbai:In a bid strengthen their midfield, Mumbai City FC have signed up Tunisia’s Selim Benachour for the Indian Super League (ISL) Season 2 starting October 3. Benachour started his career with Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2001, as an attacking midfielder and stayed until 2005. In 2009, he moved to the Spanish La Liga side Malaga. Post his stint with Malaga, Benachour signed a two-year contract with the Cypriot club APOEL.
