After a spree of departures from the club, Indian Super League club ATK Mohun Bagan has finally started bringing in the replacement players, with Brendan Hamill most recently being announced. And now, French Ligue 2 club FC Sochaux-Montbéliard club has confirmed that it has reached an agreement with ATK Mohun Bagan, that would see the 31-years-old Florentin Pogba join the Indian club.

FC Sochaux took to their official social media on late night in India on Friday to confirm that they have reached an agreement with ATK Mohun Bagan for the transfer of Pogba, who had one more year remaining in his contract, but wanted to try out something new.

Florentin Pogba is the elder brother of former Manchester United and likely Juventus player Paul Pogba. Unlike young brother Paul playing in the midfield, Florentin is a defensive addition to the team, who plays as a centre-back.

ATK Mohun Bagan faced a major setback in the form of their star defender Tiri, as the Spanish centre-back suffered a likely ACL injury during the AFC Cup that has put him out of action for almost more than half the season.

The club earlier announced the signing of Brendan Hamill as their AFC quota centre-back, but they have even added further strength to the defensive line with the addition of a very experienced Florentin Pogba.

Florentin Pogba started his professional career with Celta Vigo in Spain and Sedan in France and represented Guinea in the International stages. The centre-back signed a deal with Saint-Étienne in 2012 but was instantly sent back on loan to Sedan.

He was a part of the Saint-Étienne club till January 2018, before signing for the Turkish club Genclerbirligi. He signed for Major League Soccer (MLS) club Atlanta United in 2019 before making a return to France in 2020 to play for FC Sochaux.

So far in his career, Florentin Pogba has played over 200 matches and could be very handy for the Indian side.
