MNUFC Add Second Designated Player, Sign Forward Angelo Rodriguez

by on 10 July 2018

Angelo Rodriguez became the second signing of the summer transfer window for Minnesota United. The 29-year-old joins the team from Colombia’s Club Deportes Tolima.

Minnesota made another splash in the transfer market by making its second signing in as many days. Forward Angelo Rodriguez will become the club’s second-ever Designated Player, joining his fellow countryman Darwin Quintero. Rodriguez will take up an international spot on Minnesota’s roster.

Rodriguez recently helped his former club win the 2018 Apertura title with six goals in 1259 minutes played. With his move to Minnesota, the Colombian will end a three-season tenure with Club Deportes Tolima, where he scored 28 times in 64 appearances. In a statement, Adrian Heath said this about Rodriguez:

“He’s a player who is physical, skilled, and knows how to score. He holds up the ball well and is also able to turn and run at defenders. He causes stress on defenses by closing down and pressing.”
