PHOENIX – Phoenix Rising FC announced on Monday it had signed winger Prince Saydee, pending league and federation approval.
“I can’t wait to join Phoenix Rising,” said Saydee. “I haven’t been to Phoenix but I have heard it is a great club. I know the team won championships in the last few years. I feel like I can help them continue to do that.”
Saydee began his professional career as a 17-year-old with Barrack Young Controllers FC in 2013, where he scored 23 goals in 47 appearances for the Liberian first-division side before coming to the United States in 2019. The 24-year-old joined Miami FC ahead of the 2020 season and led the team with three assists in 11 appearances in its first season in the Championship while also recording one goal and 13 Chances Created.
“Prince is explosive,” said Rising FC Head Coach Rick Schantz. “He is very fast and excels in one-on-one attacking situations. He will add depth to our amazing attacking core and push players to compete. We are preparing for many games over a grueling season. He will help us be in the best position to win. Prince is a key piece to this puzzle.”
Saydee has appeared once for the Liberian National Team. He played the full 90 minutes for the Lone Stars in a World Cup Qualifying match in 2014.
