ISL: Carlos Pena comes back to FC Goa as head coach

By Piyush


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.
