The Philadelphia Union signed Fafà Picault to a one year deal with an option for two more. Fafà is a winger and is the third player signed this week by the Union after midfielder, Haris Medunjanin and defender Oguchi Onyewu, earlier this week. Besides being a winger, Fafà can also play as a forward.
Fafà last played for FC St. Pauli in the Bundesliga 2. Before playing with FC St. Pauli, he played for Cagliari Youth, Tampa Bay Rowdies, Fort Lauderdale Strikers and AC Sparta Prague. Fafà has also made an appearance for the United States National Team playing in a friendly game against Puerto Rico in 2016.
Look for Fafà to compete for the starting striker or right winger position during preseason. His season with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 2014 shows that he is a goal scorer, netting 12 goals in 24 games. With both Ilsinho and Fabian Herbers fighting for the starting right midfielder job, Fafà could steal that position away from those two.
