Lahoud, who confirmed yesterday that he would be leaving The Miami FC 2, acknowledged the interest from USL and from Cincinnati. He joins fellow former Miami FC teammates Blake Smith and Richie Ryan.
“We are incredibly excited to bring Michael into the group,” FCC head coach Alan Koch told the team’s website. “We are adding another excellent player who is very versatile. We look forward to welcoming him to the team and getting him up to match fitness as quickly as possible. His addition will add to the excellent healthy competition that we already have in the group.”
