ATK Very Close To Loan In “The Thief”: Emiliano Alfaro
ATK, the Kolkata based ISL franchise are in search of a new player in offence to fill the boots of Kalu Uche as the Nigerian was ruled out for at least five weeks as he took up a grade three quadriceps injury during ATK’s home game against BFC. Sources are confirming that the British gaffer has already got some ISL experienced players in his radar for the Sanjeev Goenka owned side and he has got a special affinity for Emiliano Alfaro. This Uruguyan is playing for FC Pune City from the previous season of ISL.
It seems ATK is going to get this man on loan to replace Kalu Uche for short term. Alfaro is also known as “the thief” to steal chances from the opposition to turned them into goals. He has got ten goals out of his fifteen appearances in the ISL till now.
In the current season he has scored one goal and one assist for Pune but has also missed two penalties too. Now it’s time to see whether this signing can boost ATK to make it to the playoffs or not creating more chances and goals in front of the oppositions goal.
