Spanish defender Jose Luis Espinosa Arroyo, known as Tiri, has signed a new one-year contract with ATK Mohun Bagan FC. Tiri has returned back to the club after spending 3 seasons with Jamshedpur FC.
Tiri was a part of ATK in the 2015 and 2016 seasons. He was also the part of the ISL winning ATK team in 2016. After that, he joined Jamshedpur FC and played there for two seasons. In his four seasons in Indian Super League, the defender has played in 68 matches scoring 3 goals and providing 1 assist.
Tiri is one of the best defenders of the league. His performance for his teams was always on top in the last couple of seasons.
Tiri started his senior professional career with the Cádiz club in Spain. After that, he joined Spanish giant Atletico Madrid in 2012 and played for their B team till 2015. In 2016 he made his ISL debut with ATK and was crowned champion in his first ISL season.
After returning to his old club ATK (now ATK Mohun Bagan FC) he said, “I am really happy to come back to a club and city where I already have amazing memories. I have won with the club before and I would love to win again, this time in maroon and green. The fans are great and the Mariners have such a beautiful history which I am excited to represent.”
ATKMB are also looking to sign Indian central defender Sandesh Jhinghan, who is a free agent now after leaving Kerala Blasters FC. Now the inclusion of Tiri surely increases the experience and solidity of the defence of the defending champions. They are now ready to conquer the league again.
