ISL – ATK Mohun Bagan sign Finland international Joni Kauko

Kauko made three appearances for Finland at the Euros, all from the bench. Unfortunately, his team was eliminated after consecutive defeats to Belgium and Russia. He has captained Finland’s U21 national team on the international stage and played for Finnish club Inter Turku, winning the Finnish League Cup in 2008. The Esbjerg fB midfielder’s contract expired last month, and he chose not to renew it.

ATK Mohunbagan had announced the departure of Spanish midfielder Javi Hernandez a few days back and have acted quickly to find a replacement in the form of Joni Kauko. The 30-year-old can be defined as a strong and physical midfielder. He likes to keep possession of the ball and taking shots from outside the box. A player of his profile will be a valuable addition to Habas’s side given their lack of attacking threats from the midfield last season.

After losing out on both the ISL Shield and the Trophy last season, ATK Mohunbagan has already started their preparations for the 2021-22 edition, signing talented youngster Liston Colaco for a whopping transfer fee, Deepak Tangri from Chennaiyin FC, and goalkeeper Amrinder Singh from rivals Mumbai City FC.

  1. I Francis Baruah(Ex footballer) would love to see our Indian team come up in football but just by sacking of coach is of no use.Even if we have best of coach we won’t perform until and unless the players practice hard and buildup stamina to play for 90 plus 120 minutes game. What I have noticed is they don’t have stamina and are out of ideas what to do next when they get the ball at the feet.Football is a simple game which need stamina,speed and skill ,if our players works hard on this our country will perform well.All the best to our players.

  2. Respected AIFF, As an big fan of Indian football I want to suggest you, please should give more and more International football match to out Team, because if can playing more match than obviously their performance will surely increase. Our players have all techniques, they knows how to played well, so give international match to them. our Women team ranked 57th in the world, if they can why Men team cant, please help our mens football team and give changes to those players who have really playing very well.
