Columbus Rapid make Historic Signing

Kyle Koert has represented South Africa on the international stage and will now be putting on a Columbus Rapids jersey. The Rapids are incredibly excited to introduce Kyle as the newest signing for the upcoming season under fellow South African, Rafique Hassim. 

Koert is a dynamic attacker who is comfortable wearing either the 10, 9, or 7 jersey. He can play as a striker, behind the striker, or as a winger. He likens his game to former England National Team player, as well as, Liverpool, Newcastle United, and Hamburger SV player, Kevin Keegan. Keegan recorded 225 goals in his illustrious career and if Koert can accomplish anything approaching an output like that for the Rapids, he will be a Rapids legend. 

The acquisitions of Koert and Hassim constitute a truly global ambition for the Rapids. From South Africa to the Fountain City, the beautiful game has arrived!
