ATK Mohun Bagan ropes in Amrinder Singh on a 5-year deal
Amrinder Singh is currently the top-rated goalkeeper of India. So far, he has played in quite a few games for India while playing for Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League since 2017, having won the title last season.
In what comes as great news for India football fans, the country’s best goalkeeper, Amrinder Singh, has been roped by Indian football giant ATK Mohun Bagan. The 28-year-old has signed with the 2020-21 runner-up on a five-year contract.
Amrinder happens to be one of the regular goalkeepers for India. He has been playing for Mumbai City FC since 2017, having won the title last season.
“Even though I played in Kolkata before, it was for a very short time. This joining, of course, is going to be a new chapter in my football career. Winning all the trophies for Mumbai last year was a memorable event in my life. I want the same success in the Green-Maroon jersey next season,” he told ATKMB after being hired.\
“There are three reasons behind coming to Kolkata. They are: the support of a huge number of ATK Mohun Bagan supporters, the football philosophy of the principal owner of the team Sanjiv Goenka and the glorious history of football of this city,” he added.
“I played for a while in ISL 2 under the coaching of Habas. Everyone knows about his success in ISL. Habas’s football philosophy always draws me. The biggest thing is that he brought out the best game from the Indian footballers. It’s great to be a member of this team,” he concluded.
Amrinder hails from Mahilpur, Punjab and began his youth career with Pune, where he also made his senior debut in 2011. Since then, he played for ATK in 2015 and also played for Bengaluru FC for a couple of seasons.
