Official: Iker Guarrotxena signs for Mumbai City FC until end of 23/24

Mumbai City FC have completed the signing of Spanish midfielder Iker Guarrotxena until the end of the season. The player will wear the number 34 jersey as confirmed by the official statement from the team, and joins an elite group in preparation for a busy second half of the season. 

The Islanders will be looking to retain their league title, but they haven’t hit the same heights as last season. With Greg Stewart returning to Scotland, Guarrotxena will potentially fill the void left by him.

“I am delighted to be back in India and in the Indian Super League. Mumbai City FC have always been one of the best teams in the competition and it is an honour to join a club who set very high standards on and off the pitch. Mumbai City have a history of success, and I hope to be able to contribute to that in my own way in my time here. I can’t wait to get to Mumbai and link up with my new teammates and our fans,” the player told City’s official website. 

In the past, the Bilbao-born midfielder played for FC Goa in the 2022/23 season, scoring 11 goals in 20 ISL appearances. And now, he has returned after spending a year in the Spanish third division.
