Indian Super League (ISL) side, Bengaluru FC on Monday announced the signing of Prabir Das from ATK Mohun Bagan on a three-year contract as the Blues look to build on a good squad in order to challenge for honours in the upcoming season.
Das who began his career at Indian Arrows, was instrumental in ATK winning the ISL in 2016 as he was tied for the most assists by a defender with five during the 2019-20 season, and he also went on to win the title with ATK that year. The defender has made 39 appearances for ATK Mohun Bagan in the last two seasons.
“I am very happy at having signed for Bengaluru FC because this is a football club that I have admired for a while now. I have played at the Kanteerava and the atmosphere is always high-energy, and I am waiting to experience it while wearing the Bengaluru shirt. I am eager to play a big part in bringing back the success that this club is used to and I am grateful to the owners and management for showing faith in me, and for wanting me to be a part of their ambitions,” Das said on signing for Bengaluru FC.
“Das is a player we had set our sights on for some time now, and we’re happy to have him commit his future to Bengaluru FC. Having a plethora of talent on the left, what the team needed was strengthening on the right. With Prabir and his experience, BFC have found a trusted and able player who makes us stronger. We are confident we can give Prabir the platform to excel and get back to the national team while helping Bengaluru FC achieve its goal of getting back to where we belong – right at the top,” club Director, Parth Jindal said on the signing.
The 28-year-old who has made two appearances for the Indian national team so far, will look to continue his good form and help the Blues challenge for the title.
