The Philadelphia Union, who by the way play tonight at PPL park, made a signing today. They’ve brought in central defender Juan Diego GonzÃ¡lez Alzate. Alzate has a long resume.â†µ
Born in MedellÃn, Colombia, GonzÃ¡lez brings a wealth of experience to the Union, playing for clubs in Colombia (CD Envigado 1996-â€˜99/2002, Independiente Medellin 1999-â€™00/â€™05, Santa Fe â€™03-â€™04, Once Caldas â€˜05/â€™06-â€™07, La Equidad â€™07-â€™10, Deportivo Pereira â€™10), Argentina (Club Almagro â€™00-â€™01, San Lorenzo â€™01) and Mexico (Santos Laguna â€™06).â†µ
If there was ever a place in the Union team where new blood was welcome, it’s in the defense. The Union have yet to record a shutout this season.
