“Last season, the team was very close to making it into the top-4 and I am sure we will be aiming for a higher finish in the upcoming campaign,” the 23-year-old added.

The six-feet tall striker started off his youth career with Laguna before joining the youth setup of Spanish Segunda Division side Las Palmas in 2015.

Climbing up the ladder, Siverio, at 19, was a part of the Las Palmas B side that trained under current HFC head coach Manolo Marquez in the 2016-17 season.

“He is a natural finisher, is very clever inside the box and is also strong in the air. He is only 23 and will join Hyderabad to try and show us his qualities,” Marquez said.

After spending a couple of seasons with Las Palmas B, Siverio joined Racing Santander in 2018.
