FC Pune City striker Emiliano Alfaro will play for ATK after he was loaned to the latter as a replacement for the injured Kalu Uche who will return to Barcelona for recovery from his injury. Kalu Uche is one of the most important players for the ATK and will be missed sorely by his team.
"Kalu has gone back to Barcelona. He had an extensive tear in his quadriceps muscles. It is grade three which is quite bad. He has gone to Barcelona to receive further medical treatment. He obviously leaves a big hole in our squad," revealed Coppell.
"We have requested the ISL whether we can replace him in the short team. They have said yes but that creates problems in itself because trying to find someone for a short period of time is very difficult.
Emiliano Alfaro has not been in best of his forms managing to score only one goal in six outings for FC Pune City. The ATK coach would be hoping that the player would turn the fortunes of his team. Whereas Uche is expected to be out for over a month to recover from his injury.
