CF Montréal has announced a strategic move to strengthen its defensive line by bringing back goalkeeper Sebastian Breza, who was on loan from Bologna FC 1909 last season. At 25 years old, the former Canadian youth international made a significant impact on the club during the previous season, playing in 38 matches and playing a crucial role in winning the 2021 Canadian Championship.
Confirmation of the signing reveals that Breza has inked a solid contract, extending until 2025, with options for the following seasons, signaling the club's confidence in his potential and contribution to the future. His return to Montréal marks the comeback of a player familiar with the team, and his presence between the posts promises to be a key asset in defense.
Previously linked to Bologna for five years, the goalkeeper gained experience in the lower divisions of Italian soccer, in addition to a recent stint with Yverdon Sport FC in the Swiss Super League. This international background, coupled with his adaptation to Montréal's playing style, makes Breza a valuable addition to the squad.
In the current context, CF Montréal, now under the leadership of Laurent Courtois, sees its defensive sector strengthened with Breza joining starting goalkeepers Jonathan Sirois and Logan Ketterer. The team is gearing up for the challenge of kicking off the season on February 24 against Orlando City SC at 7:30 PM (Eastern Time), with expectations of a solid and determined defense.
