NYCFC's Alexandru Mitrita scores again in loan stint with Saudi Arabia's Al-Ahli

Alexandru Mitrita is certainly making the most of his loan stint with Saudi side Al-Ahli.

The New York City FC winger, who scored a golazo on his debut after making the move in October, struck for his third goal in nine appearances in a 2-1 win over Al-Raed Sunday. 

The Romanian international received a ball into the box with the outside of his foot, spun and buried the equalizer early in the second half.

Mitrita, 25, has started eight of his nine matches in the Saudi Professional League. He's averaging 2.11 points per game and has three assists.

Mitrita’s loan stint is through Jan. 2022 with a purchase option for Al-Ahli. The move was motivated by the player's personal life, bringing him closer to his native Romania, where his wife was expecting the couple's first child.
