FC Montreal signs Cameroonian Fabrice Mbvouvouma

MONTREAL – FC Montreal announced on Friday that the club has signed 18-year-old Cameroon midfielder Fabrice Mbvouvouma.

The Cameroonian previously played for club team Rainbow FC, in his native country. On the international scene, he’s been selected by the U17 Cameroon national team (five games, two goals) and played twice with the U20s.

"He is a good, young player born in 1997," said head coach Philippe Eullaffroy. “He is a very fluid defensive midfielder and is able to change the rhythm of the game with his speed because he is explosive and well-coordinated. He likes to play forward and has a good profile for a young player of his age. We hope that he will develop in our system and we already see that he’s integrated well in our environment.”
