FC Dallas made two roster changes on Tuesday by mutually agreeing to terminate contracts of fullbacks Moises Hernandez and Jose Salvatierra.
Hernandez was one of the club’s first Homegrown players signed back in 2010. He spent a large chunk of his time as a professional on loan. The former FC Dallas Academy product made 31 appearances from 2014 to 2015, before being loaned to Rayo OKC for the 2016 season. Last season, Hernandez appeared in 26 matches with one goal and one assist for the NASL side.
“For the last 14 months, we were trying to provide Moises with an environment he could grow as a player,” FC Dallas Technical Director Fernando Clavijo said in a press release issued by the team. “We were uncertain of his future and we mutually agreed to go our separate ways. We thank Moises for his contributions and wish him well in the future.”
Salvatierra was cut due to a failed physical that were reported earlier in the week. Clavijo stated in the club’s press release that he failed all required medical and physical exams.
This opens back up a couple of roster spots for FC Dallas as the team continues their preseason training. The fullback spots were a bit of a concern going into the offseason and now you have to wonder if Clavijo and company will continue to look for replacements in this area or not. At least with Salvatierra, we move on from him now instead of seeing poor physical results midway through the season.
What do you all think of this news? Sad to see things not work out for both players?
