Talk about making some moves, FC Dallas has been very busy lately in the roster changes department. Schellas Hyndman is pulling out as many stops as possible and now he has looked to have possibly sured up his defense even more.
The club announced today that they have signed Costa Rican center back Danny Torres. A more formal announcement will come soon.
The 31-year-old has played all over during his career after starting out with Costa Rican-side Deportiva Saprissa in 1996. Some may recall his time with the Columbus Crew (01-03). After leaving MLS he returned to Saprissa again in ’03 before heading to Europe with Tromso IL (Norway) and Bodens BK (Sweden) in 2005. He then came back to MLS with Real Salt Lake from ’06-07 before heading to Norway again last year.
I’m honestly trying to recall Torres with RSL a couple years ago. Maybe some RSL fans can remind us how good or bad Torres was for them. On the surface I like the move because as we all know Dallas needed to work on their defense this winter and so far they have done so. Whether or not it will translate well on the field remains to be seen though.
