Brothers Union signed up a Bangladesh-born Italian striker Ismael Hossain John for the Bangladesh Premier League which begins today.
"My target is to secure a place in the national team. That's why I have come here to play for Brothers Union. I may stay with Bangladesh football if I find things smooth here," said John, during the Brothers Union press briefing on their preparation for the professional football league. He also claimed to have played for a club of third division league in Milan.
Brothers manager Amer Khan's evaluation of John however is that he needs time to develop the footballing sense even though the striker has good running and shooting ability.
