Atlético de Kolkata have completed the Signing of Spanish Striker Juan Belencoso.
Earlier there were a Rumor that Emmanuel Eboué might join the Sourav Ganguly Co-Owned Franchise. But that
that didn’t materialized.
Juan Belencoso and José Molina worked well together at Kitchee. Where he scored 30 Goals in 39 Matches.
Juan Belencoso also Scored a Goal against Kingfisher East Bengal FC at the AFC Cup. Although that match ended up with 1-1. A late strike from East Bengal’s Nigerian forward Ranti Martins earned his side a point.
“On behalf of the team management we welcome Belencoso to Atlético de Kolkata which will help us in further developing the nucleus of the team this year. My association with his style of football goes back to the Kitchee FC days in Hong Kong. He had been one of the most consistent performers and had been nominated as AFC Foreign Player of the Year. With Postiga and now Belencoso I feel the need for the right strikers has been precisely addressed.”
– José Molina, Head Coach, Atlético de Kolkata
