Impact signs Canadian midfielder Piette
The signing of Canadian national team midfielder Samuel Piette adds to the growing local flavour on the Montreal Impact.
The native of Repentigny, Que., who signed a two-anda-half year contract with an option for 2020 on Thursday, gives the club seven players from Quebec.
They include midfielders Patrice Bernier and Ballou Tabla and forward Anthony Jackson-Hamel, who play regularly. Back-up goalkeeper Max Crepeau and midfielders Louis Beland Goyette and David Choiniere are also on the squad. That’s not to mention defender Wandrille Lefevre, who was born in France but moved to Montreal as a teenager and is considered a “homegrown” player.
