Forge FC Signs Canadian International Maxim Tissot
The reigning Canadian Premier League champions have added Canadian international Maxim Tissot to the club’s roster ahead of its 2020 campaign.
The 28-year-old arrives to Forge FC with 45 Major League Soccer appearances and five MLS goals to his resume, having played for the Montreal Impact for three years and briefly for DC United later on. The five-foot-eleven left-back has also played for the Richmond Kickers, the San Francisco Deltas (alongside Kyle Bekker), and most recently the Ottawa Fury.
The Quebecois defender has collected the 2017 Soccer Bowl championship with the Deltas and two Canadian Championship titles from his time with the Montreal Impact.
Tissot had previously expressed an interest to stay in the Ottawa area, but CPL expansion side Atletico Ottawa didn’t end up being the Gatineau-born defender’s destination. Instead, he now finds himself in the hammer after spending several months as one of the most high-profile Canadian free agents in the game.
We are very happy to have Maxim join our club. He brings considerable experience at all levels of the game in North America, and a versatile playing style and smart mentality to the game which makes him a great fit for our squad.Bobby Smyrniotis
Tissot has also appeared for the Canadian national team no less than 13 times, most recently in 2017 during a friendly against Scotland.
Club gaffer Bobby Smyrniotis says fans can expect to see more domestic signings in the near future. Both Cyrus Rollocks and Molham Babouli have recently trialed with the side, with Smyrniotis having made it no secret that he’s looking to bring in more attacking talent.
The Hamilton-based club did not disclose the length or financial details regarding Tissot’s contract.
