Luis Marin’s time with Sporting KC has come to an end.

Sporting KC announced Wednesday that the two parties mutually agreed to terminate Marin’s contract. The 32-year-old goalkeeper will now return to his native Chile for personal reasons.In addition, the club has recalled goalkeeper Jon Kempin from his loan with the San Antonio Scorpions

Marin, who signed with the club back in December, started the first eight games for SKC, posting three clean sheets while amassing a record of 2-2-4. Marin, who was a part of Chile’s 2010 World Cup roster, has made eight career international appearances.

In recent weeks, Sporting KC has opted to start Tim Melia in Marin’s stead. The former Chivas USA goalkeeper has started four games while posting a 2-0-2 record.

As a result of Marin’s departure, Sporting KC frees up an international roster spot ahead of the summer transfer window, which takes place from July 8 to August 6

  1. i wish i could look back to the comment i made when they announced the signing back in the winter. called this disaster back then….

    • i can think of a sweet place in Marin for the both of them. It has a nice SF bay view. Its literally a million dollar view, or given bay area economics a ten million dollar view. Most people don’t know this, but San Quentin is also a little town, and the other properties there that don’t belong to the state of california are high end.

  2. Rumors in Hungary are Roland Juhasz is coming to MLS this summer. He spent 8 years as a starter with Anderlecht. He is a regular starter for the Hungarian National team and of course, there is a Hungarian connection at SKC. Peter Vermes has hinted that they are looking for cover at the center back position with the injury to Opara.

    He is a solid player and would compliment Beasler and offer experience cover during the Gold Cup.
