Official : Nigeria native joins MLS club Houston DynamoPublished: December 09, 2022
With a statement on their official website, Major League Soccer club Houston Dynamo have announced the signing of Nigerian-born striker Ifunanyachi Achara.
Achara has put pen to paper on a one-year contract for the 2023 season plus a club option for 2024.
The 25-year-old was selected by the Dynamo in Stage 2 of the MLS Re-Entry Draft on Tuesday, Nov. 22.
Achara was on the lookout for a new employer after another Major League Soccer club Toronto FC declined the option to extend his stay at the club.
He departed Toronto FC after making thirty appearances in the MLS spread across three seasons, scoring three goals while providing two assists and was in action for 1284 minutes.
Speaking on the capture of the Enugu-born striker, Dynamo general manager Pat Onstad told the club's official website : "Achara is a powerful and fast, young attacker who provides valuable depth across our front line.
"As a club, we are looking to add more players with a history of winning trophies, regardless of the level.
"We were impressed by Achara’s leadership role during a very successful period for the Georgetown Hoyas, including a National Championship in 2019.
"We look forward to his continued growth as a young professional and expect him to add to our culture and contribute to our attack in 2023."
Achara scored on his Major League Soccer debut against New York City on March 7, 2020, a feat that earned him a place in the MLS Team of the Week .
