There is no doubt that Federico Gallego has all the qualities that are required to help ATK Mohun Bagan get back to their Indian Super League hopes and the ISL League Shield-winning aspirations.

In Gallego, ATK Mohun Bagan has signed a player who can essentially replace their long-term injured Finnish midfielder Joni Kauko who is out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury.

Although it has to be noted that Fede Gallego is also a very injury-prone player as seen from his past experience during his stint with the Highlanders. But if he can stay fit for the most part in the remainder of the season, then he can deliver his best to help the team finish as the table toppers.
