#PHIvRBNY- Leon Flach

Since arriving with the club at the end of March, Philadelphia Union midfielder Leon Flach has fit perfectly in the club's system and made it difficult for Head Coach Jim Curtin to take him off the pitch.

It's an impressive feat for the newcomer who was rarely seeing time on the pitch in Germany with St. Pauli in the 2.Bundesliga but he's shown over 10 starts and 11 total appearances that the leap of faith to come to Major League Soccer and the Union was a perfect fit. Flach talked about the move with Brian Sciaretta of American Soccer Now on how he's fitting in with the Union and ultimately why he chose the Boys in Blue.

“I think if you're a young player, the reason is to play is to have a role in the team,” Flach told ASN. “That's what I have here. It's definitely a plan to go back to Europe one day. I don't know when, but it's a plan. Philadelphia is a perfect club for that. If you see Brenden Aaronson and Mark McKenzie, follow their way - maybe back to Europe. That's definitely a dream.”
