Ahmed Jahouh (born 31 July 1988) is a Moroccan professional footballer who plays for Indian club FC Goa, as a defensive midfielder.

He has been capped by Morocco at senior international level.

Club career[edit]

Born in Al Aaroui, Jahouh started his career with Ittihad Khemisset.[3] In 2010, he joined Moghreb Tétouan.[4] Jahouh went on to win the 2011–12 Botola and the 2013–14 Botola with Moghreb.[5] On 28 September 2012, he joined Emirati club Al-Ittihad Kalba on a year long loan deal.[6] In January 2013, he was released by Kalba.[7][8] On 8 September 2015, he signed with Raja Casablanca and penned a three-year contract.[8] After being used sparingly by Casablanca, he joined FUS Rabat on 25 July 2016 on a three-year contract.[9] On 31 October, he scored his first goal for the club in a 2–2 draw against Casablanca.[10]

On 2 August 2017, Jahouh joined Indian Super League club FC Goa on a year long loan deal. He became the first Moroccan footballer to play in India.[11] During the season, he did not support the logo of a sponsor (an alcoholic brand) at the back of his shirt. Jahouh, a Muslim, cited religious reasons for not having that logo.[12] However, once the season ended, he was excluded from the Super Cup squad.[13]

International career[edit]

Jahouh has been capped at the international level, representing the team in 2012 Arab Nations Cup.[11]
