What does Ahmed Jahouh’s arrival mean for Sergio Lobera?

The club announced its first summer signing in the form of Ahmed Jahouh with new head coach Sergio Lobera in charge.

As the club is rebuilding towards the new season, the spotlight will be on the explosive combination of Sergio Lobera and Ahmed Jahouh, who will start their fifth season in Indian football with Super Cup champions Odisha FC.

The Spanish tactician and Moroccan midfielder are a lethal combination and have played a vital role in transforming the clubs they have been a part of previously.

The duo previously worked together at FC Goa before moving on to Mumbai City FC. FC Goa played an appealing brand of football under Lobera’s tutelage. Both had a successful partnership at FC Goa, which was critical to the team’s success.

Sergio has an aggressive style of approach whereas Jahouh’s command in the midfield comes across as an ideal match. Jahouh’s outstanding vision, precision passing, the ability to control the game’s tempo and handle the team at crucial moments effectively matched Lobera’s style of play.

The Moroccan’s domination in the middle of the field and his capacity to exert game-controlling influence from the center of the field had a significant impact on Mumbai City FC. Lobera’s presence allowed him to successfully execute his tactical concept.

His knowledge and experience of the game and ability to intercept passes on the field have played a crucial part in the enhancement of Mumbai City FC’s style of play and approach which guided them to the league winners shield and the trophy and assuring them a place in the group stage of AFC Champions League.

It will be interesting to see how the combination of Lobera and Jahouh can prove their mettle on their new journey with Odisha FC.
