Sanchez comes to the Alamo City from the New York Red Bulls. He spent time with the USL’s New York Red Bulls II, posting four goals and an assist in 22 matches.

“Manolo is a direct forward who can play in numerous positions along the front line in a number of different roles,” said SAFC Head Coach Darren Powell. “He’s strong, aggressive, positive and likes to get to goal.”
