FC Goa part ways with Spanish striker Ferran Corominas
After three seasons in the Hero Indian Super league (Hero ISL), Spanish striker Ferran Corominas has parted ways with FC Goa, the club announced on Wednesday. During his time at the club, Corominas scored 48 goals in 57 matches, winning the Golden Ball Award for two consecutive seasons from 2017-18 to 2018-19.
The 37-year-old striker was an integral member of FC Goa, joining the club ahead of the 2017-18 season. He took no time adjusting to the Hero ISL, scoring 25 minutes into his debut against Chennaiyin FC, before scoring a hat-trick against Bengaluru FC on his home debut. In just 32 matches Corominas broke Iain Hume’s record of most Hero ISL goals, one of his many achievements in the league.
During his time with the Gaurs, Corominas reached the Hero ISL playoffs in all three seasons, missing out on the trophy to Bengaluru FC in the final of the 2018-19 season. In addition to this, he scored in the Hero Super Cup final as well, helping his team to their first silverware.
The 2019-20 season saw the Spaniard score 14 goals and assist four more as the Gaurs won the inaugural League Winners Shield and became the first Indian club to directly qualify for the group stage of the AFC Champions League.
FC Goa announced the addition of Spanish striker Igor Angulo in July, followed by the signings of Jorge Ortiz, Ivan Gonzalez, Alberto Noguera and James Donachie. Among their Indian contingent, Redeem Tlang, Makan Winkle Chothe, Sanson Pereira and Phrangki Buam have joined the club while Lenny Rodrigues and Mohamed Ali have signed two-year contracts respectively.
