Another Canadian in NASL: Attakora inks deal with San Antonio


Nana Attakora has left Unattached FC behind.

The Canadian defender, who has spent time with Toronto FC, the San Jose Earthquakes and, more recently, D.C. United, is now a member of the San Antonio Scorpions. The NASL side announced the deal Wednesday, killing rumours that had linked Attakora to the New York Cosmos.

Attakora had been on trial with the Cosmos.

“Attakora is a current, experienced, Canadian National Team defender with 70 appearances in Major League Soccer,” said Scorpions coach Alen Marcina in a release issued by the club. “He’s competed in CONCACAF Champions League while playing for Toronto FC and D.C. United. He is a powerful, fast defender that brings even more stability to our backline.”

Last season, former Toronto FC player of the year Adrian Cann helped the Scorpions to the NASL championship, though injuries kept him out of the title game. With a Canadian coach in Marcina, Attakora will likely get the chance to help re-fire a career that had seen him relegated to being a depth player in MLS.
