Atlético de Kolkata signs three new players

The team has signed Stephen Pearson, Dani Mallo and Pablo José for the upcoming ISL season.

Atlético de Kolkata has announced the signing of three new International players.

The team has signed Scottish midfielder Stephen Paul Pearson commonly known as ‘Pearo’, from Motherwell FC and two other Spaniards, Goalkeeper Daniel 'Dani' Mallo Castro who plays for Albacete Balompié and centre back Pablo José Gallardo Zurera, who currently plays for Dreams Metro Gallery FC.

The three players will add to the composition and strength of the team.

On the signings, Coach José Molina said, “While developing the nucleus of the team this year the team management has rightly retained some seasoned performers and now invested on three exciting talents. We are slowly building the side with the right combinations, while Pearson had tasted success in ISL earlier it will be new turf for Dani and Pablo and I am sure their talent will be appreciated by the ATK fans.”
