REIGNING CHAMPIONS Atletico de Kolkata got into serious business as head coach Antonio Habas today met consultant Bhaichung Bhutia to discuss about domestic players ahead of the ISL football tournament's domestic draft scheduled to take place in Mumbai on July 10.
The Spanish ISL winning coach, whose contract was renewed for the upcoming season, checked in this morning and without wasting anytime he called on the Indian football icon, who has a in-depth knowledge about the domestic players.
"It was a wonderful discussion between the duo. Habas spoke to Bhutia at length and sought to know about the profiles of various domestic players," a top ATK official told PTI.
He however said there was no discussion on marquee players and added it would be announced with a few days time.
The head coach will have a formal interaction with the team owners -- Sanjiv Goenka, Harshavardhan Neotia, Utsav Parekh and Sourav Ganguly -- tomorrow before addressing the media.
Habas will return to Mumbai after the players draft and would join the team for a pre-season camp which is yet to be announced.
