- Jose Carvallo, Released Players
It seems like DC United is cutting their losses with some of their new players from this winter by giving them the boot. We all know little ol’ Franco Niell was releases a couple weeks back, now it looks like they are cutting ties with backup keeper Jose Carvallo.
“We’ll officially announce shortly that we’ve released goalkeeper Jose Carvallo. The Peruvian joined United on January 28 of this year, but never really fought his way into the first team. He made a lone first team appearance on April 12 when the team lost to Real Salt Lake 4-0. He also made six reserve team appearances (five starts), putting together a 2-2-1 record and 1.22 goals-against-average. “
Something tells me they are going to be going after another keeper to push Zack Wells here in the coming weeks. They have a little bit of wiggle room in the cap space so my guess they may try to trade within the league for a solid backup to compete with Wells but they could also look elsewhere. Maybe former Chicago keeper Matt Pickens? Eh, eh? Maybe.
