Deepak Tangri joins ATK Mohun Bagan from Chennaiyin FC on a two-year deal
2020-21 Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) finalists ATK Mohun Bagan have announced the signing of promising midfielder Deepak Tangri on Tuesday. The 22-year-old has signed a two-year contract with the Mariners.
Tangri began his youth career with the youth system of Mohun Bagan AC and was a runner-up with their Under-19 team in the IFA Shield. He signed for Indian Arrows in 2017 and was an integral part of their squad in Hero I-League 2017-18. Tangri joined Chennaiyin FC ahead of the 2018-19 season but was immediately sent back to Indian Arrows on loan to further hone his skills.
After an impressive season, he was included in the senior squad for Hero ISL 2019-20 and made his debut with the club. In all, he featured in five games for the southerners. Tangri, who has also represented India in Under 20s, went on to play 1007 minutes across 17 games for the Marina Machans in the 2020-21 Hero ISL and impressed one and all with his passing and control.
Tangri is another big signing for ATK Mohun Bagan in the last few days. Last week, central midfielder Joni Kauko signed for them shortly after finishing his campaign with Finland in Euro 2020.
