San Antonio FC exercises club option on defender Ebenezer Ackon


San Antonio FC is bringing back one of its top defenders for the 2020 season after the club exercised its team option on defender Ebenezer Ackon.

The club made the announcement on Tuesday afternoon. Ackon returns to SAFC after leading the club in duels (431) and duels won (278). He ranked second on the team in blocks (21), interceptions (47), tackles won (54) and aerial duels won (82).

“As a staff, we are delighted to welcome back Ebenezer,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina in a statement. “He is committed to our club, culture, and community and meets the on-field performance expectation being among league leaders in various statistical categories. We look forward to developing his game further as he has the potential to progress to the next level.”

The news comes just days after it was announced Cristian Parano is returning for the 2020 season, giving SAFC two top players on both sides of the ball.

“It’s a great honor to be a part of this family for the 2020 season,” Ackon said. “I’m very thankful to SAFC and everyone who has contributed to my professional journey. I can’t wait to get back to business and achieve great things with the team this season.”
