After the departure of Gabriel Francisco Da Silva Lima in the current transfer window, FC Pinzgau Saalfelden can now be pleased about the first new arrival. The 20-year-old US-American Nicholas Bianchi moves from Gonzaga University in Washington to the regional league club and already has the first training sessions with his new teammates in the legs.
In 2022, the 180 cm tall offensive winger managed 25 scoring points (16 goals and 9 assists) in 16 games at Pima Junior College.
“Nicholas has integrated well into our team structure in the first training sessions and left a decent impression. We are very satisfied with his first week, but now we have to continue to work consistently. We will use the further preparation to take a close look at his development and will support him in the best possible way on his way with us in Pinzgau,” explains FCPS coach Markus Fürstaller.
“My first days in Saalfelden were very cool. I like the town and I have already been able to gather a lot of positive experiences after my first week of training. Everyone involved gave me a helping hand and made sure I felt comfortable right from the start. I made a conscious decision to come to Austria, I wanted to take a step in another country. I want to work on my soccer skills here and bring my level up to a better level. You’ve seen in the past that the Pinzgau can be a great springboard – you just have to take the chance and work for it every day. That is my goal,” reports Nicholas Bianchi.
