Either Kerala Blasters FC is getting prepared to replace Ogbeche with Coro, or, they are looking to play a 2 striker formation next year with both Ogbeche and Coro.
Earlier Coro revealed to media that FC Goa offered him a contract extension but the wages were quite low compare to his performance, therefore he rejected the offer.
With FC Goa announcing Igor Angulo as their striker for next season, Coro’s chances of a return is now over.
Coro signed for FC Goa in the year 2017 from Doxa Katokopias on a free transfer. He represented FC Goa for 3 seasons and has been the best forward in the ISL in the league’s history so far.
Now, can the Blasters pull of this transfer ? The team has been affected a lot financially due COVID-19, therefore asked a lot of players to take a pay cut, that includes Ogbeche, whose wage is less than Coro’s demand. So will Kerala Blasters FC be ready to splash their money on the best forward of ISL.
