Twitter reacts to… Orlando City SC signing Jonathan Spector

Addressing a key area of weakness, Orlando City SC completed the noteworthy signature of United States international Jonathan Spector on Tuesday evening (UK time).

The versatile 30-year-old defender joins after mutually agreeing his departure from Birmingham City with the Illnois-native capable of playing at centre back, right back or in defensive midfield.

Yet to play in Major League Soccer but boasting a professional first team CV spanning 14 years, Spector has represented Manchester United, Charlton Athletic, West Ham United and Birmingham City to date.


While the majority of Jonathan Spector‘s experience has come in the Football League Championship, the defender has also played in the Premier League and Europa League, underlining the excitement that surrounds his arrival in Central Florida.

Significantly boosting an Orlando City SC back line that conceded the most amount of goals (60) in MLS last season, Spector’s arrival makes up for the Lions failing to conclude a deal for Bordeaux’s Grégory Sertic last month.

Becoming Orlando City SC‘s seventh arrival this off-season following the signatures of Donny Toia, Patrick McLain, Victor ‘PC’ Giro, Will Johnson, Danny Deakin and Pierre da Silva, Jonathan Spector will wear the number 2 jersey at Orlando City Stadium.

With OCSC Twitter currently in a frenzy over Jonathan Spector‘s signature, we gathered some of the best tweets following his arrival.
