FC Goa have announced that midfielder Edu Bedia has extended his stay at the club until 2023 on Tuesday.

The Santander-born midfielder joined the Gaurs ahead of the 2017-18 and went on to lift the ISL Shield in the 2019-20 season under Sergio Lobera. In his second season with the club, Edu scored seven goals and made five assists, his highest till date with the Indian Super League (ISL) outfit.

He was also the only player to have bagged a goal for the club against Persepolis FC in their debut AFC Champions League campaign.

Edu Bedia played a significant role for the Gaurs as he picked up the Player of the Match award against Bengaluru FC in the Durand Cup as the former triumphed over the Blues, winning 7-6 in sudden death. He also scored the lone goal via a free-kick in extra-time against Mohammedan SC.

Bedia's presence in midfield plays a huge role in both the offensive and defensive phases for the Gaurs. This is owed to his immense work-rate and passing abilities. The Spaniard is expected to be a key figure in former teammate and current head coach Carlos Pena's plans as FC Goa reconfigure themselves in a bid to re-establish themselves.

Wungngayam Muirang featured in seven ISL games for Bengaluru FC last season, occasionally replacing Roshan and Parag. Muirang's versatility was an asset to former head coach Marco Pezzaiuoli and will play an important part in firing the club's philosophy into action.
