Indian Super League champions ATK Mohun Bagan have announced that their Australian striker David Williams has extended his contract by a year until summer 2021.
32 year old Brisbane-born David Joel Williams played in his youth for Queensland-based sides Pine Hills FC, Westside FC, Milchelton and Queensland Academy of Sport, where he spend time with the Academies Belgian side Club Brugge and Liverpool FC.
For there he signed for Australian A-League side Queensland Roar in January 2006, but only four months later he moved to Danish side Brøndby IF, where he played initially for the reseves before getting a chance with the first team under Rene Meulensteen, who also coached the Kerala Blasters in the past.
But by 2009 things didn’t work out and Williams came back to Australia to play for North Queensland Fury, first on loan and then he was signed by the club. He thereafter was signed by Sydney FC on loan for the AFC Champions League.
He signed in 2011 for Melbourne City FC and spend five seasons with them. In 2016, Williams tried his luck again in Europe by signing for Szombathelyi Haladás in Hungary. After two seasons he returned to the A-League to sign for Wellington Phoenix and from there he last year moved to India with team mate Roy Krishna, who jointly took ATK to the ISL title.
David Williams said, “Very excited to have re-signed with the club for one more year. Very grateful for this opportunity and very happy to be a part of the history (of the club). We created history last season and I’m sure this season will be no different. We have an excited squad so just looking forward to getting back to the training and the games.”
Mr. Dependable from down- under, @willo_15 is roaring and ready to go!
