Jürgen Locadia talks in an exclusive interview about the hours leading up to his move to FC Cincinnati and Major League Soccer.
Jürgen Locadia is officially an FC Cincinnati player.
After arriving to the Greater Cincinnati region Sunday, the 26-year-old center forward’s transfer to Major League Soccer and FC Cincinnati from Brighton and Hove Albion of the English Premier League was finalized Monday, the team announced.
In Locadia, FC Cincinnati brings on a player hardened by Europe’s biggest leagues. He’s scored 52 combined goals in 172 combined league appearances across the Premier League, Bundesliga (Germany) and Eredivisie (Holland).
The deal for Locadia, who takes the mantle of one of the biggest signings in FC Cincinnati’s short history, begins as a five-month loan spell followed by an option to purchase him from Brighton for two and a half years, the team announced.
It all came together quickly, Locadia explained Monday in an exclusive interview with The Enquirer.
