Kolkata, Mah 22 (IBNS): Two-time ISL champions ATK have signed Nigerian forward Kalu Uche as one of their first players for ISL 2018-19.

He began his career in Nigeria with Enyimba International F.C. and IwuanyanwuNationale.

Uche then transferred to WisÅ‚aKraków, playing there until 2005 where he won the Ekstraklasa three times and Polish Cup twice.

He began his Spanish journey in 2005-06 when Uche moved to UD Almería, and was instrumental in helping the Andalusia club to its first ever La Liga promotion.

He has also played for Sevilla FC, Swiss Super League side Neuchâtel Xamax, Turkish club KasımpaÅŸa SK. His solid club performances earned him a spot in the Nigerian national team and he represented his home country in World Cup 2010.
