Former Indian Super League champion ATK has signed Australian striker David Williams, who last played in the  A-League with Wellington Phoenix.

The 31-year-old is set to reunite with former Wellington Phoenix player Roy Krishna, a Fiji national team captain and A-League 2018-19 Golden Boot winner, next season.

“His pace and technique will be valuable to us. He also brings variety to the squad since he can play on either side of the wings as well. His understanding with teammate Roy Krishna will be crucial for us,” head coach Antonio Lopez Habas said.
