FC Goa have roped in Spanish forward Ferran Corominas for a one-year contract, a club official said. Popularly known as Coro, the 34-year-old has made over 250 appearances in La Liga and also have turned out for the likes of Elche, Osasuna, Mallorca and at Espanyol, where he spent the best part of 10 years.

He started out at Espanyol in the 'B' team before being promoted to the first team in the summer of 2003.

After saving the club from relegation with a last minute goal in the 2005/06 season, Coro went on to win Copa Del Rey and was also instrumental in the club's run to the UEFA Cup final in the 2006/07 season, where they finished runners-up to Juande Ramos' Sevilla.

Coro moved to Elche via Girona and was a vital cog in the team. He played the captain's role on various occasions.

A diminutive forward, Coro operates as a second striker and is excellent at linking up play and occupying spaces between the opposition's defense and midfield.

"We are pleased to have got Coro on board. Coro is exactly the sort of profile we have been looking for. We feel with his level of experience, he will be real asset to the team," FC Goa president Akshay Tandon said.

FC Goa suffered last season due to lack of sharpness in front of goal and the Goan franchise felt they would be in much better shape with former Copa del Rey winner in their ranks.
