Konrad De La Fuente hasn’t been at Ligue 1 club Marseille long, but the young American winger is already making an impact during the preseason schedule.
De La Fuente came off the bench in Thursday’s friendly against Swiss Pro League side Servette, registering two assists in a 3-1 victory. It was De La Fuente’s first assists for his new club after making a permanent switch from Barcelona earlier this summer.
The 20-year-old came off the bench in the second half and wasted little time making an impact in the final third. De La Fuente’s danced his way into the box before setting up Dario Benedetto for the go-ahead goal in the match.
