Kolkata, Jul 8 (UNI) Former champions ATK Mohun Bagan have signed attacking medio of Indian Super League – Hugo Boumous.
The Frenchman, who won the Golden Ball in 2020, was one of the best midfielders to play in the ISL last season. With the latest signing, Antonio Habas’s team’s attacking power sharpened farther.
“Hugo’s best quality is that though he is an attacking medio, like the striker he is very sharp around the opponent’s box. He is capable of passing the ball at the target. ATK Mohun Bagan is building a strong team for the next season. The club has already signed Joni Kauko, who has played this year’s Euro Cup for Finland,” a club statement said on Thursday.
This is what Hugo told the ATK MB Media team from Greece after signing the agreement on Wednesday. “I know Kolkata as the Mecca of Indian football. I am happy to sign with the city’s traditional and successful club, ATK Mohun Bagan. I have heard that the joy of playing in front of millions of supporters of the Green-Maroon team in Yuba Bharati is different and I shall play this time to win against them.”
“I am always hungry to win the trophy. I have brought success to the clubs that I have played in. And I shall keep this in mind as I play again. I will do my best to win. I am looking forward to seeing the passion and excitement of the Green Maroon supporters after winning the match. Sanjiv Goenka, the principal owner of the team, inspired me to come to Kolkata. I am grateful to him. My goal is to win the AFC Cup and the Indian Super League. ”
“Both scoring goals and helping to score goals are equally rewarding. I get pleasure from both. Team’s victory is the main purpose. That is not possible without goals. ”
Antonio Habas said “Hugo is a very fast and technically successful footballer. His personal skills are also very good. Hugo can create attacks as well as counterattacks. That is why he is so successful. With the arrival of Hugo, the strength of the team increased a lot. “This week ATK Mohun Bagan signed Ashutosh Mehta, one of the star defenders in the country.
