orange county fc gets defensive reinforcement in former mls defender patrick ianni

Lake Forest, CA - Orange County FC has only conceded one goal in three games, but there is always room for extra depth on defense. 

Former MLS defender Patrick Ianni will make his return to OCFC for the first time since 2017 when he played a big role in helping OCFC to playoff victories over Riverside Coras and FC Arizona. 

Patrick Ianni played in the MLS from 2006 to 2014 for Houston Dynamo, Seattle Sounders FC, and Chicago Fire.

"We are very excited to have Patrick back with us," owner Nader Dejbakhsh said. "He is a quality player with plenty of skill and his experience is vital to our organization."

Ianni was also a regular for the United States at the youth levels. 

The former center back was capped over twenty times for USA U20 and participated in the 2005 FIFA Youth World Championship in Netherlands.
