Thursday Kickoff: Gomez dealt to Tecos, Hahnemann released and more

HerculezGomez (

American striker Herculez Gomez is on the move again after being dealt from Pachuca to Estudiantes Tecos on Wednesday.

Gomez was packaged with Braulio Luna in a deal that sent Tecos midfielder Mauro Cejas to Pachuca.

Gomez joined Pachuca after a Golden Boot-winning season with Puebla in 2010. He struggled for regular playing time with Pachuca in the first half of the season, but came on strong late in the campaign and finished with five goals.

Gomez's departure leaves Pachuca with one American on the first team,  midfielder Jose Francisco Torres, but another could be joining the 'Tuzos' soon. Former U.S. national team midfielder DaMarcus Beasley has joined Pachuca on a trial.

Here are some other stories to get your Thursday going:


Marcus Hahnemann is looking for work, and it just might be time for him to make his way back to MLS.

The U.S. national team goalkeeper was let go by Wolverhampton after two seasons with the club. The 38-year-old netminder is currently with the U.S. national team in pre-Gold Cup camp, but is now searching for a new team.

A one-time goalkeeper for the Colorado Rapids, Hahnemann could turn to MLS, where he would immediately be one of the better goalkeepers in the league if he were to sign.


The Philadelphia Union are riding high in first place in the Eastern Conference, but could still be poised to make some summer transfer acquisitions. The club took the first step toward creating space on its roster on Thursday by parting ways with forward Chris Agorsor.

The former University of Virginia standout had yet to make a first-team MLS appearance with the Union after being acquired in a weighted lottery in the spring.


What do you think of these developments? Think Tecos is a good place for Gomez? Surprised to see Beasley on trial in Mexico? Can you see Hahnemann in MLS by this summer?

  1. I think Mexico is a better option for Beasley than MLS. Forget the argument about which one is better, it is a different league and its a challenge. Whenever he decides to come to MLS he will most likely have a spot somewhere while in Mexico he will have to fight for it. He still has something to prove somewhere.
