The week when a couple of Designated Players look set to join MLS, one exits quietly in Houston.
Luis Angel Landin, signed back in August 2009 as Houston's first Designated Player, was released Tuesday by the Dynamo. The 24-year-old Mexican striker scored just twice in 20 appearances for Houston, succumbing to injuries and inconsistent performances.
The release of Landin allowed Houston to add midfielder Anthony Obodai, who joins the Dynamo after a previous trial in June. Obodai, who has a few caps for Ghana, last played for RKC Waalwijk in the Dutch Eredivisie. He could be available as soon as Thursday for Houston's opening SuperLiga match. The Dynamo also announced the departure of assistant coach John Spencer, who left for personal reasons.
What do you think of Landin's departure? Will Obodai be a shrewd addition for Houston?
