Gursimrat Singh Gill becomes one of many ATK Mohun Bagan‘s signings of the summer transfer window. The youngster has been in and out of the Indian Super League in the past few seasons. But with his performances at Sudeva Delhi, last season have not gone unnoticed and Mohun Bagan have picked up a gem.
Gill came up through the AIFF Elite Academy where he impressed everyone. Bengaluru FC were quick to rope him in at the age of 19 into their first team. Albert Roca, the head coach of Bengaluru FC back then, felt that the player and the club had made the right decision. He believed in the player’s talent and knew that with the exposure given by the club and hard work, Gill would be a player to watch.
Gill spent one season with the Blues before moving to NorthEast United. He spent a solitary season with the Highlanders before making a return to the Silicon Valley. He would spend another 2 seasons with Bengaluru FC, in one of which they would win the Indian Super League. By this time, Gill had made just 13 appearances in the ISL across 4 seasons.
Gursimrat Singh Gill will prove his potential at ATK Mohun Bagan
After key player Sandesh Jhingan moved to HNK Sibenik this window, Mohun Bagan were in the market for a defender. The need for a defender was obvious as the Mariners crashed out of the AFC Cup Qualifiers on a 0-6 score-line. Jhingan is the current holder of the AIFF Player of the Year award and Gill will have huge shoes to fill.
Gursimrat Singh Gill was the vice-captain of the U-19 Indian National Team that took part in the U-19 SAFF Championship. After things at Bengaluru FC looked bleak, Gill moved to I-League side Sudeva Delhi where he established himself as an irreplaceable asset. He is up for the challenge.
