ISL 2022-23: After foreign center-back Tiri endured a severe injury during ATK Mohun Bagan’s AFC Cup match against Gokulam Kerala FC, a lot of plans for the Kolkata-based squad have been jeopardized.

The 29-year-old Australian defender also plays as a centre-back like Tiri and is a valuable addition to the “Mariners”. ATK Mohun Bagan have signed him on a two-year deal.
