HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred from Liverpool FC and signed using Allocation Money on March 2, 2020.

Acevedo is a good addition to NYCFC's midfield and adds competition and depth across the position group. He’s an excellent player technically and loves to win the ball back which is key in how NYCFC want to play. In possession, he’s able to dictate the tempo and that’s a quality that really helps the club build from the back.

INTERNATIONAL: His performances earned him a call-up to the Uruguayan U-20 national team where he helped lead his country to the Round of 16 in last year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland. Acevedo also featured extensively with the U-23s as they finished third in the CONMEBOL Olympic qualifiers behind Argentina and Brazil earlier this year.

OUTSIDE MLS: The central midfielder was awarded the “Joven Talento del 2019” by the Uruguayan Football Association which honors the best U-21 player in the country’s domestic league. The 20-year-old played 31 games as Liverpool finished 5th in the aggregate table last season.
