Costa Rican World Cup star and former defender Johnny Acosta has finally arrived in Kolkata for his second innings at the Quess East Bengal FC. Johnny landed early morning today ahead of the match against Gokulam Kerala FC tomorrow.
The team management is yet to announce who will be released in order to make way for Johnny Acosta and it seems the announcement will be done after the game against Gokulam Kerala tomorrow.
The 36 year old was instrumental in the I-League runner’s up run in the previous season. He along with Borja Gomez made a formidable pairing and shielded the defence with poise. The current season isn’t going well for the team with huge defensive problems to address. Coach Mario Rivera would be happy to get Johnny Acosta with the last 6 matches remaining, to at least end the campaign on a respectable note.
