Dimitrios Petratos: ATK Mohun Bagan sign World Cup playing Australian player

ATK Mohun Bagan has added Australian striker Dimitrios Petratos to its roster in an effort to bolster their front line and replace the vacuum created by Roy Krishna and David Williams’ departure.

Prior to the start of the new season, Petratos, who represented Australia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, will join the Mariners. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge from his time spent playing in nations such as Australia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and Malaysia.

The finest period of Petratos’ career was spent with the A-League teams Brisbane Roars and Newcastle Jets, when he amassed a total of 37 goals. Petratos joins Florentin Pogba and Brendan Hamill as the Mariners’ third overseas acquisitions this summer.

Greek by birth, Dimitrios Petratos originates from a footballing family. For Sydney Olympic FC, his father, Angelo, was a defender. Kosta, his younger brother, was a teammate of his with the Jets.
