As Paul Pogba wishes his brother Florentin on a new journey, the latter spoke about the challenge he would face in a new league.

“I need to know a lot more about the Indian Super League. But I have heard about Indian football from legendary footballers like Nicolas Anelka and Robert Pires who plied their trade here,” Florentin told ATK Mohun Bagan’s in-house media after completing his transfer from French club FC Sochaux-Montbéliard.

ATK Mohun Bagan is a legacy club with massive fan-following, one of the most prestigious clubs in Asia. I’m keen to play in front of 70,000 fans,” he said.
