‘FC Dallas helped me understand my dreams’

    Tanner Tessmann has thanked FC Dallas following his recent move to Serie A side Venezia, saying the club helped him define his ‘dreams and goals’.

    The 19-year-old midfield prospect joined the Dallas academy – responsible for developing the likes of Weston McKennie, Chris Richards and Reggie Cannon – five years ago, working his way up the ranks before making his first-team debut last season.

    Tessmann went on to make 30 senior appearances for the Texas side across all competitions, impressing so much so that newly-promoted Serie A outfit Venezia parted with $4m plus add-ons to bring him to Italy.

    In an interview with Venezia’s official website, Tessmann – who picked up his first senior cap for the United States in January – credited Dallas for helping shape his goals during his formative years at the club, before which he admits he hadn’t even heard of Major League Soccer.

    “I don’t think I really understood what my dreams and goals were until I went to FC Dallas,” said Tessmann. “When I was 12 or 13, I didn’t know what MLS was. I didn’t know Dallas had a team. I didn’t know anything. I was playing soccer and wanted to reach the highest level, obviously, as every kid does, but I didn’t understand what it meant to do that.
