ATK may have suffere another blow as sources confirm that their newly loaned in striker Emiliano Alfaro from Pune has suffered an ankle injury during the initial practice sessions at Kolkata.
Alfaro was brought in when the Steve Coppell managed side got their main striker Kalu Uche ruled out for at least five weeks as the former Nigerian suffered a grade three damage in his quadriceps. The gaffer immediately turned on his radar to bring in some potential to fill in the shoes of the “focal man” for ATK. But it seems the management needs to turn up their search party once again to overcome this sudden shock within a very short period of time.
The club has not yet released any statement regarding the severity of Alfaro’s ankle injury and it’s still not clear whether he will be fit before the next match.
