Kolkata: Spanish footballer Tiri, who is making his comback after three years, was on Monday named along with star Indian defender Sandesh Jhingan in a 27-member squad declared by ATK Mohun Bagan.

In 2016, Tiri was part of ATK’s ISL-winning side before switching to Jamshedpur FC, while Jhingan has been the most high-profile signing of the season.

It is yet to be seen who will partner the duo in the backline with coach Antonio Lopez Habas having former Mumbai City defender Subhashish Bose also at his disposal.

Then there’s the trio of Pritam Kotal, Sumit Rathi and Prabir Das who have been retained.

During the practice session at Benaulim Stadium, the Spanish gaffer was more attentive to their defence to get a perfect combination for the duo of Tiri and Sandesh.

“For me, every player is important. I want to build a team of players who give his best when picked.

“Being a long league, we have to be careful of injury card problems. So it’s about keeping players ready for every position,” Habas said.

Fijian star forward Roy Krishna is likely to wear the captain’s arm band but Habas, who is known to rotate his skipper, did not reveal any name.

The squad includes seven foreigners – Tiri, Roy Krishna, David Williams, Edu Garcia, Javi Hernandez, Carl McHugh and Brad Inman.

ATK Mohun Bagan will face FC Goa in their only practice match on November 14, six days before the tournament opener against Kerala Blasters.

The squad:

Goalkeepers: Arindam Bhattacharja, Dheeraj Singh, Avilash Paul, Arsh Anwer Shaikh, Aryan Niraj Lamba

Defenders: Tiri, Sandesh Jhingan, Subhasish Bose, Sumit Rathi, Pritam Kotal, Prabir Das, Boris Singh Thangjam

Midfielders: Brad Inman, Ningombam Engson Singh, Carl McHugh, Pronay Halder, Michael Regin, Sheikh Sahil, Javi Hernandez, Glan Martins, Mohammad Fardin Ali Molla, Michael Soosairaj, Edu Garica and Jayesh Rane

Forwards: Roy Krishna, David Williams and Manvir Singh.
