NYCFC, New Addition
First thing's first, Héber's home and in contention to make his first appearance as our #9 on Saturday. He joined the team at the training facility earlier this week to practice with and get to know his new teammates.
As Héber met the team and the staff, he received a warm NYCFC fam welcome, and felt right at home - making new friends and jumping right into training drills.
The striker's arrival comes in time for him to join the team to face Montreal Impact and help bridge that gap between the midfield and hopefully, the back of the net. If Héber's career and history in Croatia is any indication, we have a man who has a clinical eye for goal.
He, and Alexandru Mitriță, in attack could prove to be a dangerous combination for any of our opponents, making the two a very real threat for Montreal.
Héber has big plans in mind when it comes to his new team, in his first interview with NYCFC.com, he said:
"I hope to do great games for NYCFC and help them to win everything they aim to,” said Héber. “On the pitch I’m a player that imposes danger to the opponent inside of the box and will score goals, whenever I’ve got the space for it.”
Stay tuned to see if he makes his debut in blue at Yankee Stadium on Saturday when we announce the Starting XI.
