ATK Mohun Bagan completed the signing of Guinea international Florentin Pogba on a two-year deal. Pogba has played in a number of countries including France, Turkey, and the USA. The defender revealed that he is looking forward to being a part of the team and cannot wait to play in front of fans at the Salt Lake Stadium.

“To be honest, I’m really happy and proud to be part of ATK Mohun Bagan, one of the biggest clubs in the country. This is such an honor,” the new Mohun Bagan signing Florentin Pogba said. “I wanted a new challenge. Coming to India, to discover a new country, new championship, new clubs & new fans is such a good challenge for me. Above all, to be part of this big club’s history. This is quite new to me. I still have a lot to discover about ISL. Of course, ambassadors such as (Nicholas)Anelka or (Robert) Pires helped to highlight this championship.”

“I thank God every day for giving me this chance to make my passion my job and to have such great opportunities & challenges. Playing in different leagues (France, USA, Turkey) helps each player to grow, and improve his game but also helps him understand his teammates and competitors better. I really want to bring my experience to help the team and the club, as best I can, and win trophies together,” he added. “Fans are the heart & soul of a club. With them, we go further. I have always loved playing with the fervor of full stadiums. Can’t wait to join the team and play games in Kolkata to live and feel that special atmosphere. I’m really happy to become a Mariner and I can promise you that I’ll do my best to win trophies together. Looking forward to meeting you really soon in Kolkata.”
