NYCFC sign MF Bedoya from development league
"Playing for the team of my city, it's just a great opportunity for me and I'm very excited," Bedoya told NYCFC.com. "The first training sessions, there was obviously a lot of nerves, but the guys have been great ever since I came in, they were very friendly, very nice. The leaders on the team like Maxi (Maximiliano Moralez), David (Villa) and all of them have been helpful."
"We watched the friendly game and we saw this player, Danny, and saw he has a special quality to play in between the lines," head coach Dome Torrent said, per NYCFC.com. "His position is in between Maxi and Jesus (Medina), he has control all the time, and he understands soccer which is very important for me. He's a smart player. I'm sure 100 percent he's able to help the team."
Bedoya, from Colombia, moved to Queens, N.Y., when he was 8 years old. He was a member of the New York Red Bulls Academy from 2015-17.
