Ferran Corominas Telechea (born 5 January 1983), commonly known as Coro, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Elche CF as a forward.

Football career[edit]

Born in Vilobí d'Onyar, Girona, Catalonia, Coro was a product of RCD Espanyol's youth system. He made his first-team debut on 2 November 2003 in a 0–2 home loss against Real Zaragoza,[1] but spent his first professional seasons with the reserve side in Segunda División B.

In the last matchday of 2005–06, on 13 May 2006, Coro scored a last-minute goal against Real Sociedad, with that 1–0 win saving Espanyol's La Liga status and Deportivo Alavés being relegated instead.[2] In the season's Copa del Rey final he added another, in a 4–1 defeat of Zaragoza.[3]

Coro finished 2006–07 with four league goals in 30 games, adding five in 11 contests in the club's runner-up run in the UEFA Cup, including one apiece in both legs of the semifinal clash against SV Werder Bremen.[4][5] In the following three years combined, he amassed 75 league appearances with six goals, alternating the substitutes bench with the starting XI.

In mid-January 2011, completely ostracized by manager – and former teammate at Espanyol – Mauricio Pochettino, Coro signed with fellow first-divisioner CA Osasuna, on loan until the end of the campaign.[6] He spent the following seasons competing in Segunda División, appearing and scoring regularly for Girona FC[7] and Elche CF;[8] he helped the latter return to the top flight in his first year, after an absence of 24 years.
