Named as the MLS Goalkeeper of the Year 2018 and linked to Manchester City. We’re talking about Zack Steffen. But who exactly is he and is he an interesting target in Football Manager 2019?
Steffen’s contract at Columbus Crew nearly expires, so he won’t cost a load of money. As manager of Manchester City we managed to buy him for 2.5M + 30% on profit on the next sale and a friendly match. For the bigger European clubs he’ll be a decent reserve. However, teams below the top have a cheap option for a first team keeper.

Zack Steffen – 2018
He is one of the best goalies in the MLS and is, without a doubt, a solid number one for Columbus Crew. However, his contract expires when the American season ends.
Zack Steffen – 2028
We can see that Steffen didn’t make the right decisions by going to Bayern Munich and later Schalke 04. He was mainly a reserve for those teams and those mistakes cost him a chance in the later stages of his career. But if you give Steffen plenty of playing time, he will grow to be a decent goalkeeper.
