News in Brief: Asylum of Loons in TOTW, Rumors on Ramirez, and More

by on 24 July 2018

MLS Team of the Week

Seven goals in two games will certainly earn a team a lot of plaudits. MLS acknowledged the Loons’ performance this past week by placing an asylum of Loons and Adrian Heath on the Team of the Week. Brent Kallman and Miguel Ibarra made the bench. Bobby Shuttleworth, Christian Ramirez, and Darwin Quintero made the Starting XI. Quintero was also named MLS Player of the Week.

Ramirez to stay?

Ever since Minnesota’s second Designated Player Angelo Rodriguez signed, rumors about Ramirez’s future with the Loons have been circulating. Per Meg Ryan of the Star Tribune, while there have been offers from other MLS teams for Ramirez’s services, none of the inquiries have amounted to anything. The transfer window closes on Aug. 8.
