Houston Dynamo sign Luis Garrido

After today’s Charities Cup press conference at 2PM. The Houston Dynamo will announce Luis Garrido as their newest acquisition. The deal is said to involve an 18 month loan, which would be the rest of the season and next.

Garrido started the first two games for the Honduras Men’s National Team in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He was featured as a defensive midfielder in both games. He is coming from Olimpia. The same team that gave us both Alexander Lopez and Oscar Boniek Garcia.

Since 2008, he has played for Olimpia in Honduras before being loaned out to Deportes Savio, also of the Honduran league, and Red Star Belgrade of Serbia in 2013.

Garrido has been a staple of the Honduran National Team since debuting in 2012 in a 2014 World Cup Qualifying game against Panama. He has now suited up 20 times for the national team.

At only 23 years of age, he has been labeled as an up and coming player for the national team, and has had experience playing alongside Oscar Boniek Garcia and Alex Lopez in Olimpia.

It should be noted that he has more national team experience than Alex Lopez, and should be expected to get way more playing time from the beginning than Lopez.

As soon as more details are released about this signing we will make them public.
