FC Goa’s Ferran Corominas is the Hero of the Month for December
Ferran Corominas, popularly known as Coro, has won the ‘Hero of the Month’ award for December 2019. The striker topped a five-man shortlist that also included his teammate Brandon Fernandes, Kerala Blasters’ Raphael Messi Bouli, Chennaiyin’s Rafael Crivellaro and Roy Krishna of ATK.
The recognition couldn’t have come on a better day, as Coro received the prestigious trophy just minutes ahead of FC Goa becoming the first Hero ISL club to play its 100th league game.
The two-time Hero ISL Golden Boot winner had to miss first two games of December due to an injury but made an impressive impact immediately upon his return. The Spaniard scored 4 goals and registered an assist in the month, enabling Goa to go unbeaten in all five matches they played in December.
Coro is plying his trade for FC Goa for the last three seasons. The 37-year-old has earned much respect within the club and oppositions since his arrival to the Hero ISL. He is also Hero ISL’s all-time leading goal scorer, netting 42 times off 49 appearances for the Gaurs.
Corominas started his career in the La Liga with Espanyol, spending 11 seasons in the Spanish top-flight.
