Good news FC Dallas fans. You guys have got yourselves one of the best goalkeepers in Major League Soccer.
On Thursday former Chivas USA captain and standout Dan Kennedy announced that he has agreed to extend his contract with Major League Soccer and will suit up for FC Dallas.
The 32-year-old American ‘keeper has been part of Chivas USA for the past seven years but was selected by Dallas in the dispersal draft last month as the Goats folded and a new franchise in LA will take their place in 2017.
Kennedy became a real hero for Chivas and around the league over the years for his insistence to stick with the Goats through all the bad times.
But Dallas did not waste a second to select Kennedy as they were at the top of the allocation order for the dispersal draft and the American goalkeeper confirmed he’s signed a new deal with MLS and is looking forward to getting started in Texas.
Kennedy will replace Peruvian international Raul Fernandez, who was released by Dallas after Oscar Pareja’s side crashed out of the 2014 postseason in the Western Conference semifinals to the Seattle Sounders.
Having a ‘keeper with vast experience of the league and is a phenomenal shot-stopper will be a huge boost for Dallas’ defense going forward. Kennedy will do battle with Chris Seitz for the number one jersey in Frisco, TX.
