After a successful Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2019-20 season, Spanish attacker Edu Garcia has signed a two-year contract with ATK Mohun Bagan FC, the club announced on Thursday. Edu was an important member of ATK FC’s attack, scoring nine goals in 22 matches for the Kolkata-based club.
“I am very happy to continue playing in Kolkata and in the Hero ISL for another two years. I am looking forward to wearing the Green and Maroon jersey and will give my best to the club,” Edu said after signing his contract.
