Zahibo is the two way midfielder that can cover ground that the Dynamo have been looking for, so this player addresses a specific need for Head Coach Tab Ramos.
The French born, Guadeloupe raised, Zahibo has played in Spain and in 2018 was named to the MLS All-Star team by then-Atlanta United Head Coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino.
Zahibo is only 26 and can play as a #6 or #8 but the question is can he be CONSISTENT in the role. He has played mostly in the Spanish Second Division with Valencia B.
