MAXIMILIANO MORALEZ FILLS NEW YORK CITY FC’S FINAL DESIGNATED PLAYER SPOT
New York City FC have moved to sign Frank Lampard’s replacement, picking up former Argentina midfielder Maximiliano Moralez as their third and final designated player.
The 29-year-old has signed from Liga MX side Leon on a three-year contract, subject to receipt of his visa.
“When I heard of the opportunity to go to NYCFC, I knew that it was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up,” he said.
“I’m looking forward to playing with players like Villa and Pirlo, who are two world-class champions who have achieved a lot in their careers.
“Also, to have a quality coach like Patrick Vieira, who has been one of the best in his position, recognised worldwide, is something that will help me immensely.”
