Town’s new Yugoslavian number 35, is one of the first signings to be brought in by new manager Graham Alexander after successfully completing a trial.

Mozesh Gyorio, or Mozzi, joins from US side FC Tampa Bay after competing two seasons in the North American Soccer League and earned the status of most attacking player of the month in September, 2011. When asked about how he feels about joining Fleetwood Town, he replied: “It’s a privilege. It’s a great organisation and I’m looking forward to starting my career here” “At first it was a little unorganised with the previous manager leaving but in the end it worked out well. I kept coming to training and giving it my all every session. The 23 year old is a natural midfielder and can play in the centre or on either wing: “I like the centre but I can also play on the left or right and so i’m a versatile option for the manager." Mozzi has played for a total of 4 clubs in 3 different countries during his youth career before beginning his professional career in America. “I was born in Yugoslavia and moved to Canada when I was 4 years old and grew up there. At the age of 17, I moved to Holland and played for NEC Nijmegen for a year with the U19s and won the championship" "I then returned to America to play for the Houston Dynamo Academy before moving to FC Tampa Bay - and that’s where I started my American career.” He believes the American football is growing and hopes that one day it can become a major sport in his old country: “I played in most of the matches last season for (FC) Tampa Bay, I think around 45 games or so. The football in America is growing and hopefully it continues to do so. I think it needs to have more passion above anything else.”
