Defending MLS champion Real Salt Lake head into 2010 having lost just one key player from its title team in Yura Movsisyan, but took a major step toward replacing him with the acquisition of Costa Rican national team striker Alvaro Saborio.
RSL announced the signing of Saborio on Friday evening. He is currently with RSL in Charleston ahead of the Carolina Challenge Cup.
U.S. national team fans will remember Saborio as the dangerous striker who tormented the United States in Costa's Rica's 3-1 World Cup qualifying win in San Jose last June. Now, he will team up with Robbie Findley to form one of the best forward tandems in MLS.
What do you think of the signing? See it as a major step toward RSL repeating? Still not convinced Jason Kreis' team can do it again?
