New York City FC have signed 34 year old Spanish Midfielder Pablo Alvarez. Alvarez spent the pre-season training with New York City FC playing in the midfield in their friendlies.
Alvarez has played much of his career as a winger, but also is experienced as a central midfielder. NYCFC will be his first non Spanish club, as he is arriving from Langreo.
Alvarez had this to say about his arrival:
I couldn’t be happier about officially signing with New York City FC ahead of our historic inaugural season. I have trained hard with the team over the preseason, and will continue to work hard to give this team everything I can. I am particularly excited to play in front of our fans at the iconic Yankee Stadium.”
Having scored 19 goals over the course of 8 seasons, Alvarez isn’t a potent goal scorer but has proven to be a reliable playmaker and passer, and can add that to his attacking resume if he is to start for NYCFC.
