Ferran Corominas Telechea (born 5 January 1983), commonly known as Coro, is a Spanish footballer who plays as a forward for Cypriot club Doxa Katokopias FC.

He spent the majority of his professional career with Espanyol, appearing in 200 competitive games and scoring 24 goals. With the club, he won the 2006 Copa del Rey.

Club 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 league team 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.
