At the tender age of 5, Kimran knew he wanted to grow up and become a professional footballer and represent India at the World Cup. His initiation into the sport was thanks to his brother, who let Kimran play along with his friends at the local ground. With the ability to play with both feet, it didn’t take long for his talent to get noticed and was soon representing his school team, playing with and against older individuals. Having also represented his school at athletics, speed was another asset Kimran possessed, and he soon caught the attention of clubs in Goa, being signed on first by Salgaocar FC and then by Dempo FC a year later.
His performances for his school in the Subroto Cup as an 11 year old playing for the U14 team also earned him a scholarship, being the youngest participant in the tournament. While he likes playing Left Winger, Kimran can play across midfield and even as a full-back, making his versatility another asset.
