Marcos Periera - the 3rd foreigner for Bagan!

Though it has not been officially declared, it is quite evident from the arrival of Marcos Periera to Kolkata, just when Mohun Bagan was in search of the third foreigner that the former Bagan midfielder will sign for Mohun Bagan again.
Karim was searching for a midfielder of good physical structure and who can control midfield along with supporting the strikers upfront. Marcos had played for Bagan in the past and is well known to take much load in the midfield and also come up with the scoring boot at times. Last season he had played for JCT. His contract coming to an end in JCT and an offer from Bagan has flown the Brazilian midfielder to Kolkata and very soon he will be signing for Bagan.
When questioned about the present Bagan side, he said that Karim is a good coach and playing along with Bhaichung and Barreto he will try to make the best and give his best.
