The Colorado Rapids recently hinted that a playmaking midfielder was on his way to the club. We now know who he is.
The Rapids announced on Thursday the acquisition of Martin Rivero on loan for the upcoming season. Rivero, 22, most recently played for second division side Rosario Central in his native Argentina, where he had earned a starting role through the first half of the 2011-2012 season before joining Colorado.
The 5-foot-10 Rivero is expected to join the Rapids before their preseason trip to Hawaii.
What do you think of the Rapids aquiring Rivero? Do you see him starting for Colorado this season?
