Fijian football legend Roy Krishna has already a new home to play football; well, it is not so new for the striker as he already played for this club in the past season. According to The Bridge, Roy Krishna has already signed a contract extension to ATK-Mohun Bagan to continue in the current title holders of Indian Super League. “Roy Krishna, Indian Super League’s (ISL) highest scorer last season, has committed his future with ATK-Mohun Bagan, having agreed a new contract with the club, The Bridge understands“.

ATK has merged with also Kolkata giants Mohun Bagan to compete in the following editions of Indian Super League: “ATK-MB embark on a new journey come next season, playing as a singular entity in the ISL, and another good run in the league as well as the Asian challenge is what they will be looking at. Securing Roy Krishna, along with other key foreign stars will surely be a big boost for Habas and his team.” The local source explained that his current team was always interested to keep the player due his fantastic performances in the past season that led the club to win the Indian Super League – “Krishna had signed on a one-year deal initially with the Kolkata giants when he had signed last year, but on the back of his performances, ATK-Mohun Bagan were always keen on offering him an improved deal […],” said The Brigde.

The player also attracted interest of his former club Wellington Phoenix in New Zealand, but it is reported the Fijian international refused the offer of his former team. Krishna was also linked to Mumbai City, also from the Indian Super League, and even scouted by European clubs.
