    STEPHAN Schrock has signed a long-term deal with United City FC, ensuring that one of the best footballers in the Southeast Asian region will be staying in Philippine shores.

    The club announced on Thursday night the re-signing of Schrock, adding in its Facebook account that the Azkals captain will be playing for UCFC for “at least the next three seasons.”

    Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    “Every team needs leadership and a strong captain, and UCFC is proud to have one of the finest in the world of football on its roster for at least the next three seasons,” wrote UCFC on its Facebook page.

    The 34-year-old Schrock, over the past few years, has drawn interest from clubs abroad because of his fine play as the Philippine Azkals skipper.
