Juan Belencoso

Kolkata, Aug 25 (IANS) Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Atletico de Kolkata on Thursday announced the signing of Spanish centre forward Juan Belencoso for the forthcoming third edition of the tournament.

“On behalf of the team management we welcome Belencoso to Atletico 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,” Jose Molina, head coach of Atletico de Kolkata, said in a release.

“He had been one of the most consistent performers and had been nominated as AFC Foreign Player of the Year. With Helder Postiga and now Belencoso I feel the need for the right strikers has been precisely addressed,” Molina added.
