Attacking midfielder Hugo Boumous of ATK Mohun Bagan holds the record for most assists in the Indian Super League history. The former FC Goa and Mumbai City FC main man has provided 29 assists in 73 ISL matches.
Boumous, 26, arrived in the Indian Super League midway through the 2017-18 ISL season, joining the FC Goa side that reached the final in the subsequent campaign. In his first full season, the Frenchman recorded five assists followed by a career-high 10 assists in the 2019-20 season, which is the most assists in a single ISL season by any player.
In his two-and-a-half-year stint with the Gaurs, Boumous tallied an impressive 17 assists in 42 ISL appearances. His exploits eventually earned him a move to Mumbai City FC ahead of the 2020-21 season and riding on his return of seven assists and three goals, the Islanders won their first-ever ISL title.
Boumous tally of 29 assists is significantly more than his former teammate Brandon Fernandes, who has provided the joint second-most assists in the Indian Super League. The Indian international is among one of three players who have recorded 19 assists in the league. He features alongside Marcelo Pereira and Ahmed Jahouh.
Indian Super League’s all-time top scorer, Ferran Corominas features in the list with 16 assists in 57 games. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that only 23 players have provided 10 or more assists in the Indian Super League, with only nine Indian players featuring in the list.
This includes FC Goa’s Brandon Fernandes, Odisha FC’s Jerry Mawihmingthanga (16), Jackichand Singh of SC East Bengal (13), Bengaluru FC’s Udanta Singh (13), Mandar Dessai of Mumbai City FC (12), Kerala Blasters’ Harmanjot Khabra (12), Nandhakumar Sekar of Odisha FC (10), Anirudh Thapa (10) and Sunil Chhetri (10.)
