Ashique was delighted to join ATK Mohun Bagan and said, “I have experience in playing in Europe at the Junior stages. I have seen the preparations here (in Mohun Bagan) and they are excellent. It is a dream for any footballer to play in Kolkata, and ATK Mohun Bagan is the best club in the country. Coach Ferrando is here to guide me, and previous while playing for India at Salt Lake Stadium I have seen the passion and the excitement of the fans from Kolkata.”

“During the India matches, I have seen plenty of Green-Maroon Mohun Bagan flags. My sole ambition is to please all the Mohun Bagan fans. The aim is not to make the club win AFC Cup, Durand Cup, and the Indian Super League. I am eager to don the Green and Maroon jersey and play on the field,” he concluded.

“It has been my dream to play in Kolkata for a long time. I immediately agreed as soon as I got the offer from Mohun Bagan. There is a special feeling of the heritage associated with the Green and Maroon jersey and I am really excited to play here. Coach Ferrando prefers attacking football and I am mentally prepared to play for the best club in the country. I have seen that Kolkata is a football-loving city and I aim to give my best to make the club win the championship,” said young Ashish Rai.
