Indian Super League (ISL) outfit ATK has signed Portuguese forward Jose Egas dos Santos Branco for the upcoming season.

Thirty-year-old Branco, who is popularly known as Zequinha, played for Portuguese club Nacional last year.

“I feel extremely happy to have such energy in our team. We are definitely working towards a great start with player like Zequinha coming on board,” ATK principal owner Sanjiv Goenka said in a statement.

Zequinha thus became ATK’s second foreigner after their marquee signing Robbie Keane.

“Kolkata has great spirit when it comes to football. The crowd and its passion gives the drive for fantastic football. The ISL experience will add a new feather to my cap,” Zequinha said.
