FC Goa have announced the signing of Zaid Krouch from Moroccan club Moghreb Tetouan. The 27-year-old attacking midfielder has signed a contract which will keep him with the club until the end of the season. The move is subject to him completing his medical.
The fleet-footed attacker has represented Morocco in the 2014 African Nations Championship. He has also played in the CAF Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.
"I’m thrilled to join FC Goa. I’m delighted to be here. I have worked with Sergio Lobera during his time in Morocco and enjoyed playing under him and in his style of football," Krouch said after the move was announced.
"I have also played alongside Hugo Boumous and known Ahmed Jahouh. I have seen the team play and I believe we have a great team which plays a brand of football which is fun to watch. More than anything, I see a real hunger in the club to win something and I hope to help the club and the supporters to win silverware in the days to come," he added.
The Gaurs are currently third in the Hero Indian Super League (Hero ISL) 2018-19 table with 20 points from 11 matches and look like one of the favourites to clinch a playoff spot.
