Head coach of Phoenix Rising Football Club, Rick Schantz has eulogized Ghanaian attacking winger Solomon Asante as of the best players he has ever worked with.

“Solomon Asante is one of the finest players I have ever worked with as a coach,” Schantz noted.

“We knew from the very beginning that opponents were focused on stopping Solo and yet he was still able to have an MVP season.

“As much as I hate to admit it, Solo belongs in a higher league, but I will enjoy every minute I get with him.”

As captain of Phoenix Rising, Solomon Asante led the team to a memorable season, earning himself the USL Championship Most Valuable Player.

During the 2019 season, Asante was named the regular-season USL Championship Golden Boot Winner with 22 goals and 16 assists, breaking the club and league record for combined goals and assists.

He also lead the team in goals, assists, shots, and chances created.
