East Bengal’s surprise Greek striker

This time, Kolkata will be a great ace in the big match. The Greek striker Dimitrios Diamantakos signed a contract with East Bengal on Friday. The foreigner will be officially signed when the transfer window opens on June 12.

Just as goal machine Dimitri Petratos is in Mohun Bagan, Dimi came in red and yellow. Last season, he was with the Kerala Blasters, scoring 13 goals in 17 matches for them in the ISL. This time, he will have the trust of red and yellow coach Carlos Cuadrat. He has a two-year contract. Dimi doesn’t just score goals; he can also be the driving force in the midfield. There were glimpses of his game last time. Since then, efforts have been made to get him. Successful bosses do that.

Hijazi Maher of the Asian quota has been retained in the Red Yellow Defense. Apart from foreigners, Sol Crespo and Clayton Silva are staying. Even Madih Talal was taken. That’s why this time Red Yellow has already prepared the team well. Mumbai City FC offered good money to take Dimi. But Dimi was taken from them for a much higher contract sum. Even Coach Kuadrat spoke to the Greek star. Then the ice melts.

In the big match, two teams will fight this time. Green and Maroon fans, fondly called Petratos Dimi, and Red and Yellow fans got theirs too. The field will be ready for a strong fight in the big match.
