ISL 2017: FC Goa sign Spanish forward Ferran Corominas

New Delhi [India]: FC Goa has confirmed the signing of Spanish forward Ferran Corominas on a free transfer for the upcoming fourth season of the Indian Super League (ISL).

Popularly called ‘Coro’, the 34-year-old has ranked up over 250 appearances in La Liga and has a wealth of experience behind him having turned out for the likes of Elche, Osasuna, Mallorca and at Espanyol where he spent the best part of 10 years.

Confirming the signing, the club president, Akshay Tandon, said: “We are pleased to have got Coro on board. Coro is exactly the sort of profile we have been after. We feel with his level of experience that he brings to table, he will be real asset to the team and a handful to the opposition.”

Coro started out at Espanyol in the B Team before being promoted to the first team in the summer of 2003. After saving the club from relegation with a last minute goal in the 2005-2006 season, Coro went on to win Copa Del Rey and was also instrumental in the club’s run to the UEFA Cup final in the 2006-07 season where they finished runners up to Juande Ramos’ Sevilla.

Coro then moved to Elche via Girona where he once again was a vital cog in the team and donned the captain’s armband on various occasions where he helped the club maintain its status in La Liga over several seasons.

A diminutive forward, Coro largely operates as a second striker and is excellent at linking up play and occupying spaces between the opposition’s defence and midfield. Boasting a quick turn of pace, Coro is known to favour the odd spectacular goal or two. (ANI)
