FC Cincinnati sign midfielder Haris Medunjanin

Haris Medunjanin - Philadelphia Union - June 2, 2019


FC Cincinnati announced on Thursday that they've completed the signing of veteran midfielder Haris Medunjanin, their selection in last week's End-of-Year-Waivers process.

A key contributor for the Philadelphia Union over the past several seasons, the 34-year-old started 98 matches for Jim Curtin's team from 2016-19 and was the only outfield player in MLS to play every minute of the regular season this year. Philly elected not to re-sign the Bosnian after his contract expired. 

“We are pleased to add an experienced midfielder in Haris to our roster,” FCC GM Gerard Nijkamp said in a statement. “We believe his strengths on the pitch will be a good fit for our style of play. We look forward to integrating Haris within our squad as we look to the 2020 MLS season.”

A deep-lying distributor with a cultured passing range, Medunjanin led all MLS players in 2019 in total passes (2,571), total completed passes (2,182), passes in the opponent’s half (1521) and completed passes in the opponent’s half (1,217) according to Opta.
