“I’m delighted to continue my tenure at FC Goa and want to help the team succeed in the coming season”, Clifford said.

“I’m also looking forward to working with our new Head Coach Juan (Ferrando) and together taking this team to new heights. Being able to work with FC Goa in the AFC Champions League is another exciting prospect for me.”

FC Goa Director of Football, Ravi Puskur was equally pleased to see Clifford Miranda sign on the dotted line.

“Clifford’s growth as a coach has been commendable. Since he joined us, he has shown an incredible appetite to learn, self-improve and has also gone about improving the players under him in the junior squad and the First Team.

I’m glad that Clifford will continue to form a vital part of the coaching staff and I’m confident that under Juan, he will only gain more knowledge and experience and will have an active role to play in the direction the first team takes this season. His knowledge and playing experience in India will be vital in guiding the local players through the season and improving them as they go along.”

Under the former national team midfielder, FC Goa finished top of the Hero Indian Super League (ISL) standings and subsequently became the first ever Indian Club to book their place in the group stages of the AFC Champions League.

Clifford Miranda recently completed his AFC Pro Diploma Coaching course and during his playing career, was capped 44 times by the Indian national team.

The 37-year-old has also played 12 matches in the ISL, representing both FC Goa and Atletico de Kolkata (now ATK), with two assists to his name during that time.
