FC Dallas has added Daniel Hernandez to its roster. He has already received his international transfer certificate and is eligible for MLS play.
The defender/midfielder spent eight years in Major League Soccer, most prominently with the New England Revolution, with which he lost three MLS Cup finals. He also played for the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Tampa Bay Mutiny, and the New York MetroStars.
For a spell between 2003 and 2005, as well as since 2007, Hernandez has played in the Mexican First Division. He spread his time over stints with Necaxa, Puebla F.C. and Jaguares de Chiapas.
“I know Daniel Hernandez very well as a player having coached him at SMU,” FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman said. “He’s a strong player that will add tremendous experience to our line-up. His time with the Mexican First Division and past success in MLS will help us in our final push for a playoff spot this season and in the future.”
Hernandez not only played his college soccer in Dallas but grew up in the area playing club ball. His home town of Tyler is only a short drive east on interstate 20.
Alvaro “Tom” Sanchez was added to the Disable List with a right ankle in a separate roster move.
