ACQUIRED: Signed with Minnesota United on 1.24.2017
Añor signed with MNUFC ahead of its inaugural MLS season after joining the club on a season-long loan during 2016 preseason training. The Venezuela-born midfielder arrived to the Loons from Sporting Kansas City. He has played six total seasons in MLS (with Columbus Crew SC, Sporting KC and now MNUFC).
Using his skilled touch, Añor excels as a holdup player, allowing his team to get up the pitch and build a sustained attack. He works well along the wings and can also thrive in a central-midfield role, acting as a pivot player to distribute the ball up the flanks.
Añor arrived in the U.S. in 2007 to feature for the University of South Florida college soccer team. He was the leading scorer for the Bulls in three of his four seasons, missing much of his sophomore year after suffering an ACL tear midway through the campaign.
The midfielder was selected 48th overall by Columbus Crew SC in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft and signed with the club shortly afterwards. He made 13 appearances during his rookie season and progressively earned more time with the team during his four-year tenure.
Añor was traded to Sporting Kansas City ahead of the 2015 season, where he managed 13 appearances in a crowded midfield, before joining the Loons on loan in 2016. He did not feature for MNUFC in 2017 due to an unfortunate series of injuries.
2017: Did not play in 2017.
PERSONAL: His father, also named Bernardo, was a professional soccer player in Venezuela, while his brother Juanpi currently plays for Málaga in Spain.
