If you are going to go big in the free agent signings through MLS, this is certainly a way to do it. I’m still holding out hope that he is more of a replacement for Mauro Roslaes than for Mauro Diaz but either way, it is a good pick up.
The veteran brings a lot of flair to the midfield and more importantly, a lot of leadership that will come vital during the club’s CCL run.
