The Ethiopian attacker has netted two goals in his first three games for Atletico De Kolkata in the 2014/2015 Hero India Super League.
He struck in the team’s 3-0 win over Mumbai City FC and the 2-0 victory over North East United FC.
“I am enjoying it here and the fans are great,” said the 28-year old Lemessa.
