Odisha FC has completed the hiring of Sergio Lobera as their new head coach. As previously reported, Odisha FC led the race to hire the Spanish coach and has officially finalised the transaction.

Despite the considerable public scrutiny regarding Lobera’s future, Odisha FC was able to seal the agreement. Having previously emerged as the front-runners in the battle to hire the Spaniard. The Lobera tale has enthralled the Indian football world. And it is now coming to an end with the 46-year-old signing a contract with the Juggernauts.

Sergio Lobera has a proven track record of success in the Indian Super League. Having previously led FC Goa to the final of the 2018-19 season and to the League Winners Shield the following year. Despite his achievements, Lobera left Goa in 2020 to join the City Group-owned Mumbai City FC a few months later.

Lobera had a fantastic debut season with Mumbai. Helping the side to their first-ever silverware in the shape of the League Shield. Following this accomplishment, he won the Playoffs title. Making him the only manager in league history to earn the coveted league double.

Lobera’s technical brilliance and ability to get the best performance from his players were critical to Mumbai City FC’s success. And he rapidly established himself as one of the most renowned managers in the Indian Super League.

Sergio Lobera opted to leave Mumbai after his first season to join Sichuan Jiuniu in the Chinese Second Division. Lobera guided the Chinese team to a seventh-place finish in the league by winning 18 of their 34 matches during his time there. However, only a few days before the start of their new league season, the administration of Sichuan Jiuniu severed company with Lobera. He was eyeing a return to the Indian Super League.

Lobera’s hiring as Odisha FC’s head coach would undoubtedly pique the interest of the team’s fans and the Indian football community at large, given his remarkable track record. Odisha might be a club to watch in the 2019 Indian Super League season if Lobera can duplicate his success with Mumbai City and Goa.

Odisha FC has struck gold by gaining the services of one of the most sought-after coaches. With Lobera at the helm. The Juggernauts have made a statement of purpose. As his appointment might be just what the club needs to shake off their previous setbacks. And establish a name for themselves in the forthcoming season. One thing is certain: Lobera’s presence to Odisha FC will instill a fresh sense of hope and enthusiasm in the club, and it will be interesting to see how he and the Juggernauts perform in the forthcoming Indian Super League season.
