Major League Soccer in America side FC Dallas head coach Nico Estévez is over the moon following his team’s signing of Ghanaian forward Eugene Ansah.
The gaffer is full of praise and admiration for the former Hapoel Beer Sheva attacker as he sees him as a perfect player with the right profile which suits the club’s style of play.
“One of the things we noticed during the year we’ve been following Ansah is that he’s played as a #9 and as a winger,” said FCD head coach Nico Estévez.
“They’re two positions he knows well. As a #9, he can stretch the field very well and has good hold up play and he’s good at getting in the box for crosses.
“As a winger, he has that speed to stretch the opponent’s backline and attack the box, he’s great at that. And he likes to shoot from distance which will help us.”
Ansah’s arrival could breathe new life into an Dallas attack that has been hampered by injury issues over the first half of 2023. The Israel Premier League only ended last month so Ansah should be close to match fit. The hope is that once the 28-year-old will be able to contribute soon after arriving in Dallas.
