Ahmed Jahouh signs one-year contract extension with Mumbai City FC
Ahmed Jahouh has extended his stay with Mumbai City FC and will stay with the Islanders till the end of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) 2022-23 season.
The Moroccan joined MCFC before the Hero ISL 2020-21 and has been pivotal player in their setup since then, having helped them win the Hero ISL League Winners Shield and the Hero ISL trophy in the 2020-21 campaign.
"For me, staying on at Mumbai City was one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make. I’ve enjoyed my football in the last 18 months – we had a hugely successful season last year and I am proud to have been a part of a piece of history of this club, but I don’t want us to stop at that. We have an important challenge ahead of us with the remainder of the ISL and the AFC Champions League. I want to help bring more success to the club and everyone associated with Mumbai City, especially the fans who have shown so much love in my time here and I hope that we can have them back with us in Mumbai very soon.”, said the 33-year-old Midfielder.
This season Jahouh has scored three goals and assisted six more in the 13 games he featured for the Maumbai-based club and has proved himself to be a key player in Des Buckingham’s push to retain the title.
"Jahouh has been one of the most consistent and influential players in the ISL. His experience, technical ability and game intelligence are complimented with being a fantastic person with great characteristics. We are delighted to have Jahouh extend his stay with us and he will continue to play an important role here at Mumbai City.”, said the MCFC Head Coach.
This has been an important couple of days for the Islanders after Mourtada Fall also extended his contract for one-year.
With the top four race being closer than ever, Mumbai City FC fans would hope that their stars take them to glory!
