FC Goa vouched the recruitment of Carlos Pena as the club’s new head coach.
He came back to the franchise 2 years following concluding a trophy-laden spell as a player with the club.
“It was a very easy decision. And whilst there were offers for me to choose a bigger role in Albacete and in other clubs in Spain, the offer to take charge of FC Goa was too good to pass on,” Pena was quoted as voicing in a media statement.
“My only focus now is to get FC Goa back to the top,” the new head coach appended.
A UEFA Pro License holder, the previous 2 seasons saw Pena get into coaching after his retirement at the end of the 2019/20 season.
He began his coaching career with the youth team of Lorca prior moving on to UCAM Murcia.
He had ended the 2020/21 season as the assistant coach of Lleida Esportiu’s senior team.
