He joined FC Goa in June 2017 and in his second season of Indian Super League (ISL) in 2018, he led Goa to their second final against Bengaluru FC. Lobera renewed his link at Fatorda Stadium until 2020. Five months later, he led his team to the conquest of the Hero Super Cup.

Born in Zaragoza, Aragon in Spain, Lobera was a professional computer programmer, who also trained children in football until he got an opportunity to work with FC Barcelona.
