San Antonio FC has added a loan player to their squad as they announced on Friday that they had secured Zachary Herivaux on loan from Major League Soccer (MLS) club New England Revolution.
Herivaux will be on loan for San Antonio for the season from New England where he has been playing for the past two seasons. At just 21 Herivaux is looking to get match experience at the professional level to help his career at New England, and potentially outside of his current MLS club.
2016 was the best year yet for Herivaux in his second season with the Revolution he played in the MLS Homegrown Game in San Jose. He played all four matches for the club in the US Open Cup, almost all of his appearances for the club in his career.
A young man with a broad background Herivaux is eligible to represent three countries at national level in Haiti, Japan, and the United States. Herivaux has represented Haiti at both Under 23 and Under 20 levels playing in CONCACAF Championships for both teams.
With San Antonio FC in such strong form currently, and top of the league, it will likely prove difficult for Herivaux to break in to the side. Midfield is a position that San Antonio FC is currently flush with depth in so he will have to work hard to get a spot in the side, and certainly won’t start in Vancouver on Saturday.
Herivaux has only played ten matches as a professional and scored his first goal in the US Open Cup in June 2016. That shows that there is some chance of him turning up as a deep goal scorer for San Antonio FC which would only help his chances of furthering his career.
