- Winter Transfers, Yura Movsisyan
One western club’s attack is about to lighter. Next January Real Salt Lake striker Yura Movsisyan is leaving Major League Soccer for Denmark according to Goal.com. Movsisyan has signed for Danish side Randers FC.
Movsisyan’s current MLS contract with RSL will be up after the 2009 season.
This loss will be a big one though I’ve said a few times this season that I haven’t felt good enough about Movsisyan as a go-to striker for RSL. He’s a big, strong guy that will probably do well in a league like Denmark. At least he is getting to test the waters before it is too late on his career.
What RSL will do to make up for his departure is unknown at this time. I honestly believe right now that if they even want to think about reaching the playoffs for a second straight season, they need to get a big time scorer on their roster. Right now with Movsisyan and Robbie Findley their attack just lacks a punch of some sort. Mainly Findley is too hot and cold at times and Movsisyan hasn’t proven he is a guy that can finish a lot of clean up around net.
What do you think of the move? Happy for Movsisyan? What will RSL do to make up for the loss?
