FC Goa signs Mourtada

FC Goa have signed Senegalese central defender Mourtada Fall for the upcoming Indian Super League (ISL) season.

The 6ft 3 inch African is a valuable addition to Sergio Lobera’s men and will provide much-needed strength and height in the Gaurs’ back line.

Mourtada is known for his ability to react quickly to make tackles and dispossess opposition forward players.

I am very happy to be signing for FC Goa and have heard many great things about the club and fans from Sergio (Lobera). I can’t wait to start this new adventure with the Gaurs,” Fall said.

Head coach, Sergio Lobera was all praise for his new signing.

Fall is a powerful centre-back and is physically very strong. He is an excellent player who will suit our system of playing the ball out of defence,” he said.

“He will definitely help us improve our game defensively. He is a dedicated and committed player who puts the team first. I know him well from my time in Morocco.
