ATK Mohun Bagan has been progressively remaking itself into a distinct entity ever since Juan Ferrando joined the team. The football team that was once noted for its defensive and counter-attacking styles has transitioned to a more possession-based strategy in recent seasons.
Before the start of the new season of the Indian Super League (ISL), the Spanish manager was required to bring his players who were suited to his playing style.
The Mariners have acquired several notable players while also releasing others from their roster. The performances of certain players, in conjunction with the ideology of the coach, were the primary considerations that went into making this decision to make these changes.
Now that the transfer window is closed, it looks like ATK Mohun Bagan will be one of the best teams in the Indian Super League (ISL) in 2022-23. In light of this, let’s take a look at the most recent members who have been added to the Green and Maroon Brigade in preparation for the forthcoming season:

As a result of Amrinder Singh’s poor play between the sticks for ATK Mohun Bagan, it became increasingly apparent that the club would have to go elsewhere to fill the position. Arsh Shaikh, who started in place of Amrinder in the AFC Cup, lacked the necessary experience to assume the role of the team’s first-choice goalkeeper and shoulder the responsibilities that come with it.
Therefore, the previous goalkeeper for Chennaiyin FC, Vishal Kaith, was enticed to join the team based in Kolkata. The inclusion of Vishal in the ATKMB lineup will be beneficial to the club’s performance in the upcoming season of the Indian Super League (ISL).
After the Mariners’ most recent match in the knockout stages of the AFC Cup, in which they were defeated by a significant margin, it seemed quite expected that the club would have to make some adjustments to their defensive unit. One of the names that left an impression on me was Florentin Pogba. Juan Ferrando and ATK Mohun Bagan did not waste much time in luring the Guinean defenders to the city when they made their move.
The experience of having won the AFC Champions League is something that the former Melbourne Victory center-back can contribute to the team. His ability to carry the ball adds to what makes him a good modern centre-back.
By playing alongside defenders of the calibre of Pogba, Pritam Kotal, and Subhasish Bose, Hamil will be able to contribute to the overall defensive stability of the team. During the 2022–2023 campaign, it will be fascinating to watch Hamil make a contribution to ATK Mohun Bagan’s chase of the championship.
Following Hyderabad FC’s triumph in the Indian Super League (ISL), Asish Rai has emerged as one of the most intriguing potential additions to the ATKMB squad in advance of the 2022-2023 season.
The full-back is a terrifying threat to the opposing team’s defenders thanks to his quickness, acceleration, and lung-bursting sprints up and down the right side. The acquisition of Asish will give Juan Ferrando more firepower to use in his assault heading into the 2022-2023 season.
The left winger is a versatile player who once played for Bengaluru FC. As a result of his flair, work rate, and on-ball work, Ashique has established himself as one of the most dangerous Indian players in the ISL.
The confirmation of ATK Mohun Bagan FC’s objectives for the 2022–23 season comes from the acquisition of his services. It provides an overview of the type of football that ATKMB’s Spanish gaffer plans to concentrate on improving. Ashique is a versatile player who can also be utilised in the left wing-back position, where he is just as dangerous as he is in his other roles.
The player who formerly played for the Newcastle Jets is not a goal-scorer in the traditional sense. However, he possesses a spark of creativity and has the versatility to play any position across the front three as well as the number 10 position. Petratos, like his predecessors, Roy Krishna and David Williams, had the talent of being able to take shots from unconventional angles.
The Australian national team forward’s mindset for the forthcoming season was the driving force behind ATK Mohun Bagan’s decision to bring in the national team forward during the summer transfer window.
Lalrinliana Hnamte Hnamte was lauded for the contributions he made to SC East Bengal while wearing the team’s jersey. After the ISL season ended, the ATKMB philosopher took an interest in the young player and was able to convince him to join the club.
Hnamte is a young talent with a lot of potential who, together with a group of other young players, has the potential to bring some lethality to the squad.
The young goalkeeper signed with ATKMB a day after making his preseason debut for ATKMB’s competitors, Emami East Bengal FC, in a friendly match against Diamond Harbor FC. After graduating from the Mohun Bagan SAIL Football Academy, the player spent time with the I-League club Churchill Brothers FC before deciding to make Kolkata his permanent home for the 2022-2023 season.
