Youri Djorkaeff, the first Frenchman to play in the MLS

We remember the passage of the French attacker in the highest division of football in the United States, the first in his country to come to play football in the USA.

For the Major League Soccer have been many French footballers, but the first of them arrived in 2005 and his name is Youri Djorkaeff.

The European striker debuted with Grenoble Foot of his country in 1984 and throughout his career he defended the colors of teams like Strasbourg, Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan, among others.

In his last campaign as a footballer, Djorkaeff decided to venture into the United States league when he signed with the New York Red Bulls, a team he played during the 2005-06 season.

Youri played 45 games between regular season and playoffs and managed to score 12 goals after accumulating 3 thousand 810 minutes of play. In addition, he collaborated with 11 assists and had 135 shots to rival goal.

Back then, the franchise was led by experienced strategist Bob Bradley. Djorkaeff came from England’s Blackburn Rovers and managed to earn a place in Bradley’s scheme during his stay in football in the United States.

At the national level, he won the 1998 World Cup of France, the Eurocup 2000 and the Confederations Cup in 2001. He is currently seen in exhibition matches with legends of the time.
