Midfielder Puitea joins ATK Mohun Bagan from Kerala Blasters!

Kolkata giants ATK Mohun Bagan have announced the signing of midfielder Puitea from ISL rival Kerala Blasters.

24 year old Mizoram-born Lalthathanga Khawlhring, known in short as Puitea, played locally football before joining Bethlehem Vengthlang FC in the Mizoram Premier League and then joined the Academy of DSK Shivajians FC.

It was at DSK Shivajians FC that Puitea made his senior I-League debut before moving to NorthEast United FC, where he spend three seasons with a loan spell at Aizawl FC in the 2017/18 season.

Puitea joined Kerala Blasters in 2020, he needed some time to settle down and had an exceptional 2021/22 season for the Blasters as the team reached the ISL final. But this season, Puitea has only been used in patches and that has now resulted in a mid-season transfer to rivals ATK Mohun Bagan.

The Mariners get a quality Indian midfielder, who will strengthen their side.
