Atletico de Kolkata have signed Portuguese international striker Helder Postiga as their marquee signing for the 2015 Indian Super League (ISL) campaign.
The signing of former Porto, Tottenham Hotspur and Deportivo La Coruna player was announced on Wednesday afternoon and will be expected to help the Kolkata-based club to retain their ISL title.
“The presence of Postiga will definitely bolster the team for the season ahead and also allow the Indian and international players to learn from him,” said Atletico coach Antonio Lopez Habas.
“He will have an altogether different experience when he plays in front of Kolkata’s football aficionados. I am sure Postiga’s presence will make the city and Atletico fans proud.”
The second edition of ISL will get underway in early October and lasts for ten weeks, featuring eight teams.
