San Antonio announced the signing of another Midfielder with MLS ties on January 22nd. SAFC added Michael Lahoud to the 2019 squad. The 32 year old Lahoud will bring a wealth of experience from a 10-plus-year playing career to SAFC. His journey includes stints with the Philadelphia Union and Chivas USA in MLS. Chivas USA made him the 9th overall selection in the 2009 MLS SuperDraft. Lahoud also has USL experience, most recently playing with FC Cincinnati in 2018. Which means he'll be reunited once again with fellow Midfielder Lance Laing here in San Antonio.
Lahoud was quoted about the signing in a team press release saying, “The ownership and staff want to build something special here and do it the right way. This year we have a new team, which means new challenges. As an experienced player, I hope to help lead on and off the field as we aspire to make history in San Antonio.”
The addition leaves the SAFC roster at 18 players. Only a few spots remain as the team nears the start of Pre-Season.
