The 37-year-old went further, “It was a really, big test for myself – to move into another country and join a team played 15 games in three months without a break. It was a good test for me, and I’m happy I was able to help the team reach a historical finish that they haven’t been part of in a long time.”

The former Minnesota United and Colorado Rapids hitman also acknowledged the club’s history.

“It is a club with the biggest fan base in the country, a rich history, and now I am only proud I was able to go there and be part of that history.”
