ATK Mohun Bagan announced the signing of defender Ashutosh Mehta ahead of the ISL season. Mehta, who has previous stints with ATK in ISL and Mohun Bagan in the I-League, returns to Kolkata after spending a season with the NorthEast United FC.
Mehta, who won I-League titles each with Aizawl FC (2016-17) and Mohun Bagan (2019-20), will be looking to bolster the defence of last season’s ISL runner-up. With the number of foreign players reduced to four in each side from the ensuing season, Mehta’s performance as a side-back with NorthEast United in the previous season may have inspired ATK MB coach Antonio Lopez Habas to get him back in the side.
