One of the finest midfielders in the league, Ahmed Jahouh, joined the ISL as an established player in Morocco. He won the Morrocan league twice with Moghreb Tétouan, coached by current Mumbai City FC coach Sergio Lobera. In 2017, Ahmed Jahouh joined FC Goa. This created a new-look midfield and soon, it got settled with the likes of Edu Bedia and Hugo Boumous.

A natural ball player, Jahouh donned the defensive midfield position with his play. The ability to find spaces and to pick out the right pass comes in handy for him. He won back to back ISL winner’s shield for FC Goa and Mumbai City FC. He joined Mumbai City FC last season and was one of their key players in their title-winning campaign. Overall, for both FC Goa and Mumbai City FC, he has made 71 appearances with 1 goal and 12 assists.

Finally, he joined Delhi Dynamos in 2016, where he scored 10 goals and made 5 assists in just 15 games.
