Career[edit]

In July 2015, it was announced that Winter was acquired by Major League Soccer team Orlando City SC.[2] Winter made his debut for Orlando City on 8 August as a 72nd-minute substitution for Servando Carrasco.[3] He later scored his first two MLS goals in a 3–1 win over Sporting Kansas City on 13 September.[4] After playing well into the 2016 MLS season, Winter parted ways with Orlando City on 1 July due to family reasons and returned to Switzerland to play for FC Zürich.[5][6] He made his league debut for Zürich in a 2-0 home victory on 25 July 2016 over FC Winterthur. He played all ninety minutes of the match.[7] He scored his first league goal for the club not long later, on 6 August 2016 in a 4-0 home victory over FC Wohlen. His goal, the third of the match, came in the 40th minute.[8]
