FC Goa in ISL 2021-22
Last season was a disaster for FC Goa. They finished ninth in the league table, with just four wins from 20 matches. Having started off poorly with three consecutive defeats, FC Goa was rediscovering its form when head coach Juan Ferrando jumped ship to join ATK Mohun Bagan after activating his release clause.
The club then appointed Derrick Pereira to see off the season. With a new coach at the helm, FC Goa showed some resurgence but were plagued by injuries and recurring COVID-19 positive cases in the squad. They lacked the consistency needed for a top-four finish and eventually finished at the bottom half of the standings.
FC Goa have already confirmed the appointment of former club player Carlos Pena as their head coach for the upcoming season. With several stars departing, the extension of Edu Bedia will surely be a great boost to the fans of Gaurs. Edu Bedia knows the pulse of the supporters and his leadership skills will definitely help the club in its resurgence.
