Both Nato and Josemi the heroes of the last edition will again don the red and white jerseys for Kolkata’s very own team. After the announcement of signing striker Iain Edward Hume for this season the team has now decided to keep two of their most consistent foreign recruits to add to the finesse on the pitch.
“Atlético de Kolkata is consistently making some sensible choices to build the team for 2015. The motive is to build a favourable and experienced bench strength which will be an asset over the taxing three month long tournament”- Sanjiv Goenka, Chairman RP- Sanjiv Goenka Group, Co-owner, Atlético de Kolkata said on Friday. On the other hand Utsav Parekh, Co-owner of Atlético de Kolkata said, “Josemi and Nato’s performances last year have been game changers for us on numerous occasions. It is but a natural process that they have been retained as consistency along with experience are the most important factors for any player on the field.”
