After a successful season winning the 2019-20 Hero ISL, there’s no question that I want to stay with the Champion team. I had a wonderful first year both on and off the field in Kolkata. Everyone including the players, management and fans made me and my family feel very welcomed. It was my first experience of India and I’ve really enjoyed my time away even though it’s very far from familiar grounds. Kolkata is an amazing city with lovely people and it’s now a second home for me,” the 32-year-old striker said after signing a new one-year contract extension.”
“I’m looking forward to returning to India and getting back to training under the guidance of coach (Antonio Lopez) Habas. I’m also excited to reunite with my teammates in Kolkata. I am also very excited about the merger of ATK and Mohun Bagan. Hopefully, the borders reopen in time for the pre-season trainings,” he added.
I am delighted to extend my contract with @ATKFC Mohun Bagan. I had no hesitation in choosing to remain with the Champion Team. Looking forward to returning to Kolkata, training, reuniting with teammates & the merger of ATK & Mohun Bagan
