Spanish flavour

After three years of the blue team being dominated by Brazilians, FC Goa has added a Spanish quotient with head coach Sergio Lobera Rodríguez and a few players he has handpicked for this year’s Indian Super League (ISL). VIVA GOA speaks to ardent corporate football fans about their expectations from the Gaurs

How do you feel the new Spanish additions will change FC Goa’s style of play this season?
The very thought of the Spanish League conjures images of Barça, Real Madrid, Atlético and the Tiki Taka way of football. I am looking forward eagerly to checking out the Spanish influence on our team. I am sure that the Spanish Armada of Manuel Arana Rodriguez, Sergio ‘Chechi’ Juste, Eduardo Bedia Peláez, Adrian Colunga and Ferran ‘Coro’ Corominas will surely take FC Goa to the top of the ISL. Forca Goa!

How do you feel the new Spanish additions will change FC Goa’s style of play this season?
All these years we had Brazillian Zico coaching and the Brazilian style of play. Now we’ll see the Spanish style of football. From South American style to European style, both are distinctly different.
I am a football fan and like to watch good football and do not really give more importance to style of play. As long as it is entertaining, it’s fine by me.
I have high hopes from FC Goa and I really hope we win this year. I wish the team good luck.
