Josh Gatt signs with Austrian club SCR Altach


Josh Gatt has had a number of ups and downs throughout his professional career but, after a stint in the U.S., the winger is returning to Europe for his next move.

Gatt has signed with Austrian club SCR Altach after previously returning to the U.S. in 2017. Gatt previously played for the club in 2010-11, making 15 appearances and scoring four goals before moving to Molde in Norway.

During his time in Europe, Gatt was routinely plagued by injuries from 2013-16, keeping him out of action for several long stretches. Gatt, who made two appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team in 2012-13, moved to Minnesota United to start the 2017 season, but was traded to the Colorado Rapids that March without making an appearance for the club. In Colorado, Gatt played 20 matches, scoring two goals before having his option declined at the end of the season.

During the offseason, Gatt’s wide, Melissa, was diagnosed with cancer, but is now cancer free as the 26-year-old winger moves back to Austria.

SCR Altach finished eighth in the Austrian Bundesliga last season.
