Ahmed Jahouh extends stay with FC Goa

Panaji, Jul 25 (UNI) FC Goa have announced that Moroccan midfielder Ahmed Jahouh has extended his stay with the club.

Jahouh dominated the league statistics; finishing as the top passer with 1,625 passes and tackles with 105 tackles through the season.

“I am delighted to have signed a contract extension with FC Goa”, he said. “We played some amazing football last season and the entire country took note of it. But more than this, it was the amazing love and support I've received from the fans that made my decision to sign for this great club easier. I am very excited for the new season to begin and am really looking forward to being back in Goa”.

FC Goa Head Coach, Sergio Lobera was full of praise after retaining the the services of the Moroccan midfielder. “Everybody that has seen Jahouh play already knows his great performances from last season. He was one of the best midfielders in the league and plays a key role in our system. I am very happy that he has decided to continue with us despite having many offers from other clubs.”
