Macarthur FC Lock-in Frenchman Loïc Puyo


Macarthur FC are delighted to welcome Frenchman Loïc Puyo to the Bulls for their inaugural season.

Puyo joins Ante Milicic’s inaugural squad for the 2020/21 A-League season kicking off on December 27.

The 31-year-old has amassed 192 professional appearances across the top three French leagues most notably with French first tier outfit SCO Angers and Amiens SC in Ligue 2.

The 5-foot-9 central midfielder becomes the second international to join the A-league newcomers for their inaugural campaign after Englishman Matthew Derbyshire’s announcement earlier in the year.

With 22 goals and 18 assists, the addition of Puyo further strengthens the Bull’s midfield in preparation for their debut in the national competition.

Macarthur FC Head Coach, Ante Milicic said:

“We are delighted to welcome Loïc into our inaugural playing squad for the 2020/21 season.

“He has strong composure on the ball, very technically sound and good range in passing. He will be an excellent fit in the way we want to play our football.”

“This will be the first time Loïc has played football outside the French leagues and I’m looking forward seeing him play in the A-League.” Milicic added.

Loïc Puyo said:

“I was very excited when speaking with Ante about the opportunity to join Macarthur FC.

“To be part a new club and join the inaugural squad is something I never thought I would have the opportunity to do.

“I’m looking forward to the challenge and playing in the A-League for the Bulls.”

Puyo will join Macarthur FC training on the completion of mandatory 14 days hotel quarantine, in line with current government regulations.
