Some news that is actually good news for FC Dallas fans. The hefty contract on the books is now no more as FC Dallas and Mexican defender Dulio Davino are parting ways according to Dallas GM Michael Hitchcock.

“Duilio is a great professional who has enjoyed a storied career,” said Hitchcock. “He brought a great deal of experience and leadership to FC Dallas that will benefit our younger players for years to come. We wish Duilio all the best in the next chapter of his career.”

Honestly this is the best for both parties as Davino was never the defender he once was in Mexico. Most felt he was too slow for the MLS game and honestly he never really fit into the Dallas system once Schellas Hyndman took over.

With a big contract off the books now I would imagine Dallas will go out and try to sign another center back to replace Davino and possible use the rest of that money to either bump up some current contracts to to hold off on a Designated Player.

Davino is said to head back to Mexico here.

    Look at the players FCD let get away and then to give big $ to this guy makes it clear why they were one of the worst teams in the league. Couple all that with hiring and college coach and a RSL failure as his assistant and you can see again what complete mess this franchise is.
