On completing his move, Ritwik said, "Owen Coyle is a great coach to play for and his passion and commitment to win trophies is well known.

In the 2020-21 season, Ritwik joined Kerala Blasters which became his first foray into the ISL before joining Jamshedpur FC.

Jamshedpur FC head coach Coyle was delighted to add Ritwik to the roster.

He said, "We are excited to have Ritwik on board with us for the season. He completes a very talented bunch of Indian players for us. He is young and has blistering pace, with and without the ball, which fits well with our game plan and philosophy. He has proven himself over the years and his presence will provide further depth to our squad."

Ritwik will don jersey number 18 for the season and will join the squad for pre-season after completing mandatory quarantine at the team hotel.
