Solomon Asante joins US-based Phoenix Rising FC

Ghanaian international midfielder Solomon Asante has completed a move to United Soccer League (USL) side Phoenix Rising FC from CAF Confederation Cup holders TP Mazembe.

The 27 year old spent 5 years at the Congolese club after joining from Ghana Premier League side Berekum Chelsea in 2013.

Asante helped lead the club to three league titles in four seasons in addition to an African Super Cup title in 2016 and an African Champions League title in 2015.

The flamboyant midfielder made his debut for Ghana against South Africa in 2011, and was part of the Black Stars squad at the 2012 AFCON.

He will be reunited with former TP Mazembe Head Coach Patrice Carteron at the American side.
