History:
With four MLS Cups to its name, including the first two in 1996 and 1997, the Red & Black have set the standard for MLS. United are renowned for a devotion to attacking soccer and youth, a style implemented by the club"s original manager, Bruce Arena, and manifested by Bolivian central midfielder Marco "El Diablo" Etcheverry who posted 40 goals and 101 assists in 191 appearances. Etcheverry had several strong goalscorers alongside over the years, including Honduran Raul Diaz Arce, American international Roy Lassiter, and Bolivian Jaime Moreno. Moreno, still active, is the club’s all-time leading scorer, with 76 goals through 2004. A recent youth movement by coach Peter Nowak has brought in the likes of Alecko Eskandarian, Santino Quaranta, and the latest US phenom, Freddy Adu.
