Marco Fabián joins Philadelphia Union
Marco Fabián has completed a transfer to MLS club Philadelphia Union after three years at Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Mexico international moves to the east-coast side with immediate effect, where he will join Eintracht legend and club ambassador Oka Nikolov, who is on the Union's coaching staff.
"Marco's made his mark here over the last three years with his fun-loving, open personality," said board member Fredi Bobic. "As a lifelong member of the club, he'll always have ties here. Even over the last few months, which can't have been easy for him, he always remained loyal to Eintracht. For that reason, and many more, we wish him all the best for the future."
From relegation play-offs to cup success
Fabián joined the Eagles in January 2016 from hometown club Deportivo Guadalajara and helped Eintracht avoid relegation via the play-offs in his first six months in Frankfurt. Despite enduring various setbacks with injuries, the attacking midfielder was involved in the club's upswing over the subsequent two years, and he played his part in Eintracht reaching two successive DFB Cup finals. He was part of the starting line-up in the 2017 final and was an unused substitute in the 2018 triumph.
