The 25-year-old defensive midfielder, who has played in Bundesliga for Hamburger SV in the 2018-19 season, joined the Red and Gold brigade from A-League side Wellington Phoenix FC. He follows a list of stars like Gary Hooper, James Donachie, Aaron Halloway, Joel Chianese and others to come to the ISL from A-League.
“I am really looking forward to adding to the strength of SC East Bengal, which is already a top side in India. I have been doing a lot of reading on the club and football in India, and the project under Robbie excites me. I cannot wait to get going, for us and the millions of fans we have across the world,” Matti said after joining the ISL club.
Undoubtedly the Hamburg-born footballer will strengthen Robbie Fowler’s side which will be heavily relying on its foreign department.
