The Atletico de Kolkata announced the signing of Irish football legend Robert David "Robbie" Keane for the upcoming season of Indian Super League (ISL).
"As a football fan, I am eagerly looking forward to some Irish magic touch on the field when Robbie plays his first game in our colours. His envious record as a centre forward while playing for his country Ireland, English Premier League Clubs or Major League Soccer teams are known to all football fans. I am sure it will be a great association and a learning curve for our entire team ATK, said Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, Principal Owner, ATK.
"I feel extremely fortunate to have played for some of the best clubs in England and the USA, as well as representing my country at several major tournaments. At this stage of my career, the offer to experience a new league and culture in Asia appealed to me. To join the current Indian Super League champions is a great pleasure and through hard work,
I hope to bring the ATK fans more success and enjoyment over the course of the 2017-2018 season."
