Indian Super League (ISL) side, Mumbai City FC confirmed the signing of Alberto Noguera over the weekend, with the Spaniard joining the Islanders on a one-year deal, meaning that he will stay with them till May 2023.

Noguera who played a key role in FC Goa winning the Durand Cup in 2021 has established himself as one of the most influential midfielders in the league in the last two ISL seasons. In his time in India, Noguera has lifted the 2021 Durand Cup and has amassed 4 goals and 11 assists in the Hero ISL.

The 32-year-old who came through the ranks at Getafe before he was picked up by Atlético Madrid in July 2009, has also had stints with the likes of Blackpool in England and FC Baku in Azerbaijan - meaning that he brings in a lot of experience with him.

“I feel a sense of pride to be joining Mumbai City. There is ambition and hunger to win at this club and the philosophy here is to play attacking and beautiful football. I have seen it from the outside in my two years in the ISL and now I’m ready to help bring success to the club,” Noguera said on signing for the club.

“Alberto is an excellent addition to our team and has shown consistently over recent seasons his ability to influence games in a way that will suit our style. He is a very experienced player who will also provide additional leadership to the group while allowing us to develop and adapt the way we want to play. I am delighted to have Alberto with us and I look forward to working with him," Des Buckingham said on the signing of Noguera.
