Former PSG midfielder Lorenzo Callegari is headed to the Canadian Premier League with the Halifax Wanderers. The 24-year-old signed with the club for the 2023 CPL season with a club option for 2024. The French midfielder spoke about the move stating,
“I can’t wait to come to Halifax to meet the other players and the supporters that I know always come out and support the Wanderers. I’ve never been before, but I can’t wait to discover Canada; I’ve only heard good things! The club has kept important players from last season, so I think there will be a good atmosphere within the team.”
The PSG academy product was most recently with Chambly. While with the Championnat National 2 club, he made 30 appearances. As a player, he is known for his wide range of passing and technical ability. The Paris (Meudon) born player even played with France at the youth level from U17 through U19.
The Canadian Premier League is a growing league that is headed into their 6th season. Halifax has not yet won the league but has a strong following and ambitious ownership. Along with the league, the winners of the CPL receive entry into the CONCACAF Champions League which includes teams from the MLS, Liga MX, and Caribbean and Central American teams.
