For days, Haris Medunjanin has been the talk of FC Cincinnati’s match against Philadelphia Union.

The choruses of praise being sung for Medunjanin by both clubs are likely to continue during and after Cincinnati hosts the Union at Nippert Stadium at the University of Cincinnati on Wednesday (7:30 p.m.).

Medunjanin is held in high regard by both organizations but his personage is truly revered by Philadelphia, where he played the last three seasons prior to joining FC Cincinnati for the 2020 season.

Medunjanin was a key player during a kind of soccer renaissance in the Union organization in recent years. He scored five goals and compiled a club-record 29 assists over his time at what’s now called Subaru Park. 

Medunjanin was part of the 2019 team that topped the Eastern Conference standings at times during the regular season before finishing with a team-record 55 points, which was good for fifth in MLS.
