Spanish defender Jose Luis Espinosa Arroyo, who is better known as Tiri in the Indian football circuit, has decided to ply his trade for Atletico de Kolkata for the second season running, Goal can reveal.
The Kolkata side have retained a number of their key players from last season, as Goal had earlier revealed that the outfit have extended deals with Ian Hume, Ofentse Nato and Sameehg Doutie.
Tiri, who now plays for the second team of La Liga side Atletico de Madrid, had made 13 league appearances for the Sourav Ganguly co-owned outfit in the second edition of the Indian Super League (ISL). It will be interesting to see whether the club can retain the services of Arnab Mondal, who has been a pivotal part of the squad for the last couple of years.
When contacted, Tiri chose not to comment on the above development.
