A week after FC Dallas cut ties with fullback Jose Salvatierra for failing to pass a medical exam, the player has come out with his side of the story.

Speaking to, Salvatierra claims he did not take a medical exam with FC Dallas. The report states that the Costa Rican had prior knee injuries that likely kept FC Dallas from keeping him for the season.

"I do not make any examination, what they did was normal handling that makes a doctor and approach him are at high risk of injury , " said Jose Andres.

"Everyone will have his thinking, his reference to them was a high risk, but other doctors have told me that the risk is not high long as I keep well muscularly, " he added.

Either way, FC Dallas is left looking for another fullback for the 2017 season.

What do you make of this update? Glad that FC Dallas passed on a guy with prior knee issues?
