Ferran Corominas Telechea is a Spanish footballer born on the 5th of January, 1983 in Vilobí d'Onyar, Spain. Popularly known as Coro, he presently plays for the Indian Super League team FC Goa as a forward.
Coro was a part of one of the many youth systems of the football rich Catalonia province of Spain. He eventually became a product of RCD Espanyol youth system.
He played for the reserves side of Espanyol in the Segunda Division B during the majority of his first professional season.
He made his professional debut in a game against fellow La Liga team Real Zaragoza on the 2nd of November, 2003, at the age of 20. Espanyol suffered a 0-2 home loss in that game and Coro remained goalless.
Coro did play for the Spain U19 and U20 sides for a couple of occasions. They finished runners up in the FIFA U20 World Cup in 2003 and won the UEFA European Under-19 Championship in 2002.
However he has failed to make his debut in the senior side of the Spanish football team, mainly due to the immense competition.
Rise To Glory
Coro achieved much fame in the 2005-06 season. On 13 May, 2006 he scored a last minute goal against Real Sociedad.
The game ended as a 1-0 win for Espanyol and Coro’s goal prevented Espanyol’s relegation from the La Liga. However, this was the first of the two times he led his team to glory.
He scored a goal in the finals of the 2006 Copa Del Rey against Real Zaragoza. The game ended as a 4-1 victory for Espanyol and they were crowned champions.
In the beginning of 2011, Coro started facing problems at his home club. He was completely shut out by the manager of Espanyol. He was forced to leave his childhood club for a one season loan to CA Osasuna.
Coro is to blame for his lack of ability to give quality performances at the time when they are needed the most. This is one of the major reasons for him not being selected for the Senior National team of Spain.
Coro achieved European success with Espanyol in 2007 as they finished runners up. He helped the team reach the finals by scoring one goal in each leg of the semi finals played against SV Werder Bremen.
After his spell at Osasuna he spent time playing for clubs like Girona from Catalonia and Elche. He led Elche to their promotion from the Segunda Division to the La Liga after 24 long years.
In 2017, he signed for the Indian Super League side FC Goa. Since his signing he has performed excellently, by scoring two hat tricks in one season.
