OKLAHOMA CITY – Energy FC have signed defender Amer Sasivarevic to a contract ahead of the 2019 season, Head Coach Steve Cooke announced today. Sasivarevic was a standout at Grand Canyon University before being drafted by FC Dallas in the 2018 MLS SuperDraft. Sasivarevic also played for Lane United FC of USL League Two in 2016.
“Amer is a left back, primarily”, said Cooke. “He likes to get forward, and in college at Grand Canyon University, he did really, really well from an attacking perspective. We first saw him after last season’s draft when FC Dallas picked him up from the combine, and we saw him in preseason games. I went down to watch him, and we also played against him. Amer was a very consistent, very hardworking, very hard-nosed defender, who was decent with the ball as well. Having spoken to Oscar Pareja and Marco Ferruzzi, they were raving about his attitude, commitment and work ethic. So, from not only a playing standpoint but from a cultural standpoint, we think Amer fits perfectly with us.”
Energy FC begin the 2019 season on the road against expansion club El Paso Locomotive FC Saturday, March 9. The first home match will be against Las Vegas Lights FC Saturday, March 16 at Taft Stadium.
