FC Goa midfielder Edu Bedia has signed a one-year extension with the club and reiterated his loyalty saying that he did not want to play for any other club. Bedia joined FC Goa in 2017 and has been one of the mainstays of the team during the last five seasons. He will be pulling the strings once again next season under his former teammate Carlos Pena.
“I told Ravi (Puskur, director of football) many times (last season). I want to play only in FC Goa. If not, I’ll try to get another offer from a club in Spain. After this, I am going to play only in FC Goa,” Edu Bedia said. “I play for my team, my teammates, for FC Goa fans. I don’t play for other fans, other teams, other players. Sometimes I don’t like (what I am doing), but you have to kill time, create a little fight to finish the game, and ensure you have the maximum points.”
“If, for example, in minute 85, we are up one-nil and have suffered a lot at this moment, my job is to ensure that we keep the score. I know not everyone likes them, but these things are important in professional football. You have to do this for your club,” he added. “People speak that he does not have experience as a coach. He was a player for 15 years in Spain, in the best league, in the first and second division. You don’t need more experience than that.”
