HOW ACQUIRED: Signed on February 2, 2017.
Playing primarily at left midfield, Fafa Picault had an eye-catching first season with the Philadelphia Union. Not shy about going forward, he brings a lot of excitement with his pace and ability to dart in in toward goal from the flank.
INTERNATIONAL: Picault has earned one cap for the United States National Team, in a friendly against Puerto Rico on May 22, 2016. Previously, he had been called up to the Haiti National Team in 2014, but did not make an appearance in any matches.
OUTSIDE MLS: The experienced winger started his path at the age of 16 where Picault joined Cagliari’s reserve team and spent six seasons with the Serie A side. Picault would go on to play in the NASL and appeared for two NASL clubs in his career, combining for 42 appearances with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Fort Lauderdale Strikers, while recording 12 goals. For St. Pauli, Picault recorded four goals and three assists in his 22 appearances in the Bundesliga 2.
