  • 2009 Allocation List, Danny Szetela

DC United has claimed 22-year old midfielder Danny Szetela today via the allocation system. He trained with the team for the first time today. He will not be available for Saturday’s match, as the is still awaiting receipt of his International Transfer Certificate.

Since DC claimed Szetela it means that FC Dallas passed on the young midfielder. DC was second in the allocation order to Dallas and now the Black-and-Red will move all the way to the bottom of the list.

I don’t expect any sort of trade to be done either here for Szetela’s rights between Dallas and DC too. We know how passive Dallas can be in trades dealing with the allocation system. Even if they had traded spots with DC they’d still be top in the rankings after it was all said and done.

So United fans, happy with the pickup?

(Note I’ll have an updated allocation order later this afternoon up for you all)

    Why didn't Dallas claim him? Even if they didn't want him, I'm sure they could have gotten something good in a trade!

    Is Sztela still in the USMNT picture?
