Stephan Schrock banners UCFC returnees, signs three-year deal

One of the greatest Filipino football players is staying with the club that he has led in different domestic and international battles. 

Four-time Philippines Football League champion Stephan Schrock has announced through his Facebook account tonight that he has signed a new three-year deal with United City, which prolongs his stay with the reigning title holders.

“My career is a career that has never been done before in the long history of the beautiful game in my mother’s country, therefore – I’m very happy and honored to continue to go down that path for another couple of years with United City Football Club,” his statement read.

“There will be milestones set in the near future, historic events that may change the game forever. The first ever AFC Champions League season for a club from the Philippines, and another couple of trophies for us to pick up in the PFL. I’m here to stay. Truly yours.”

For its part, United City announced the big news roughly the same time as their talismanic skipper through its Twitter account. Filipino football fans eagerly anticipated the news. Safe to say, the wait was worth it.

“Welcome back Stephan Schröck,” read the post.

Every team needs leadership and a strong Captain and UCFC is proud to have one of the finest in the world of football on its roster for at least the next three seasons.”

His retention caps off a four-day revelation from United City regarding the 13 players whom the club has re-signed for the upcoming campaign. After the 34-year-old, the players with the biggest profiles are Bienvenido Marañon, who is very close to becoming a Filipino citizen; and midfielder Mike Ott.

Anthony Pinthus was earlier announced to have been signed permanently by the club from the Azkals Development Team.
