SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio FC announced on Thursday it had acquired forward Nathan Fogaca on loan from Coritiba FC of the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A for the 2021 USL Championship season, pending league and federation approval. Per club policy, terms of the loan were not disclosed.
“We are keen to welcome Nathan to the SAFC family and thankful to Coritiba for supporting the loan,” said SAFC Head Coach Alen Marcina. “He is a young and talented attacker who brings Brazilian Serie A & B experience. Nathan exhibits on the ball creativity and off the ball commitment to the press, which will add to our attacking group.”
Nathan has amassed nearly 40 appearances with Coritiba since 2018, recording more than 1,200 minutes of action for the club.
