Kolkata giants ATK Mohun Bagan have announced the signing of Uruguayan playmaker Federico Gallego for the remainder of the 2022/23 season.
At ATK Mohun Bagan, Federico Gallego is replacing injured Finnish midfielder Joni Kauko, who is out for the season.
The 32 year old Montevideo-born Federico Gallego Revetria started his youth career with Institución Atlética Sud América, where he also made his senior debut in 2010.
He stayed with the club for six senior level seasons with a loan spell at Argentino Juniors in neighbouring Argentina before signing for Comunicaciones FC in Guatemala.
Only a year later Gallego returned to Uruguay to sign for local side Liverpool Futbol Club, but in 2017 he signed for Boston River.
Then in the summer of 2018 Gallego moved for the first-time outside of the Americas to India by signing for NorthEast United FC and there he was an influential player in the Highlanders first run to the ISL semifinals. He returned to the Highlanders for a second season in ISL-6, but it didn’t work out as the year earlier due to injury but he once again was a very influential player in ISL-7 and extended his contract for ISL-8, but again an injury cut his season short.
In September 2022, Federico Gallego signed for Uruguayan Segunda División side Sud América before now returning to India to play for the Mariners.
We are delighted to announce the signing of Federico Gallego for the remainder of the season!
