RICHMOND, Va. – (Friday, January 24, 2020) – The Richmond Kickers are pleased to announce the signing of forward Emiliano Terzaghi for the 2020 USL League One season, pending ITC, USL League One and USSF approval.
"Emiliano is a clever, explosive attacking player that scores goals,” said Kickers Sporting Director and Head Coach Darren Sawatzky. “We worked to find a striker with the ability to change the game on his own while also fighting with a group of players to win as a collective. We feel that Emiliano has the potential to score goals in USL League One and we are excited to get him here and into our team."
A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Terzaghi comes to the Kickers after playing at San Martin De Burzaco in Argentina. Before joining San Martin, he has played a majority of his career with Club Atlético Banfield in the Argentine Primera División, including scoring the game-tying goal against Boca Juniors in the final minute of the match. A regular goal scoring threat, he started with the U-20 side and moving to the second team before finally signing for the first team. During his time with Banfield, Terzaghi played under current San Jose Earthquakes head coach Matías Almeyda.
“I want to thank the Richmond Kickers and the coaching staff, for the opportunity to join the team and grow in my career,” commented Terzaghi. “I’m very anxious to be there and meet the players and fans. I have no doubt I will adapt to the team and give the best of me on and off of the field for the club, but mostly for the fans.”
