FC Edmonton has re-signed defender Allan Zebie (ZEB-ee) to a contract for the 2021 season, the club announced today.

This will be the 27-year-old’s third season playing for FC Edmonton in the Canadian Premier League (CPL). Since 2019, Zebie has made 28 appearances with the club, and played 2382 minutes. Zebie also played with FC Edmonton when the club was a member of the North American Soccer League (NASL). Zebie spent three seasons (2015-2017) playing for the Eddies in the NASL, making 58 appearances. The versatile midfielder also represented Canada in the 2013 CONCACAF U20 Championship tournament.

“Allan has proven that he can be a successful member of the team both in the NASL and CPL,” said Alan Koch, Head Coach. “I look forward to seeing his progression as we move forward as a club with our preparations for the 2021 season. His positional versatility, selflessness and commitment to the team will be a major part of the culture that we install in our new group this coming season.”

Born in Paris, France, Zebie (5’7”, 165 pounds) moved to Edmonton with his family when he was 15 years old. He is a product of the FC Edmonton Academy, and after graduating from the Academy, Zebie had a brief stint oversees playing with English club Leeds United and Scottish club Rangers before signing a professional contract with FC Edmonton on January 22, 2015.

“I am delighted to be back for another season,” said Zebie. “It makes me proud to represent my hometown again, and I am looking forward to working hard, and helping to right the wrongs that the team made in 2020.”
