El Paso Locomotive FC forward Jerome Kiesewetter has signed with Inter Miami FC. Kiesewetter will join the David Beckham-owned Major League Soccer club, which is set to play its first season in 2020.
“Jerome made a huge impact on and off the field while in El Paso. We thank him for his commitment here and we wish him all the best with Inter Miami. At El Paso Locomotive we pride ourselves on player development and offering a platform through our style of play for players like Jerome to grow and establish themselves as top players within the USL, while also showcasing the ability and potential to move to MLS or beyond,” commented Head Coach Mark Lowry.
“This is another example of how El Paso Locomotive has truly arrived within the global soccer landscape and Jerome’s success, and the success we had on the field in 2019, only motivates us to strive for more in 2020.”
Kiesewetter joined El Paso in early April from Bundesliga club Fortuna Düsseldorf and brought with him an attacking prowess and finishing ability.
The German-born American striker appeared in 28 matches and led the team in goals scored (12); he sparked the flame that would lead El Paso to find its rhythm in the attacking half.
