FC Dallas signs Ghanaian defender
[MLS] FC Dallas has signed 29-year-old Ghanaian defender Aziz Ansah, who made his most recent of nine appearances for Ghana as a sub in a 0-0 friendly tie with Angola Nov. 18.
Ansah has spent the last two seasons with Heartland FC in Nigeria. He was named the Sportswriters Association of Ghana Best Footballer of 2003 while playing for Ghana's Asante Kotoko.
"Aziz will be a good addition to the FC Dallas defense," said Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman. "He has the ability to play in many different positions, having played in all four of the defensive positions as well as defensive/holding center midfield. When I saw him recently in Ghana he was playing right midfield. Aziz is very technical and has the athletic ability to match up in the MLS."
Ansah played for Ghana at the 1997 U-17 World Cup and started in Ghana's loss to Brazil in the final.
