US Winger De la Fuente to Olympiakos on Loan from Marseille

August 13, 2022

MARSEILLE, France — American forward Konrad de la Fuente has joined Greek club Olympiakos on a season-long loan from Marseille, the teams said Saturday.

The 21-year-old winger struggled with playing time in France and had season-ending knee surgery in early April. He finished with one goal and three assists in 23 appearances.

Regular playing time in Greece could provide De la Fuente with an opportunity to earn a roster spot with the United States for the World Cup, which starts Nov. 20.

De la Fuente, who is from Miami, made his U.S. national team debut in November 2020 in an exhibition at Wales. He played for the Americans at the 2019 Under-20 World Cup.

He signed a four-year contract with Marseille last summer after joining from Barcelona.
