Blas Perez confirms FC Dallas departure, writes farewell message


Blas Perez’s four-year stint with FC Dalas has come to an end.

The 34-year-old Panamanian forward confirmed his exit from FC Dallas on Wednesday in an open letter on Twitter.

“On football there are cycles, unfortunately, the day on which FC Dallas and me must take separate ways, has come,” the message says. “My will always was to remain at this club and renew my contract, but the board and technical staff have other plans against this will.

“It has been (four) great years at FC Dallas, a club which I would like to thank for the opportunity of letting my family and me to know this city and league. To everyone who works on this institution, thanks for receiving me and making me feel part of this family just from the first day I arrived at this club.”

Perez only started 14 games this year for FC Dallas, but in total — including the postseason — he scored 37 goals in 103 appearances.

The Panamanian was recently linked with a move to Costa Rican side and CONCACAF Champions League contender Deportivo Saprissa.

Here is the full message he shared on his social media account:


What do you think of Perez’s departure? How will you remember Perez?

  1. If the FIFA game had a stat for gamesmanship, Blas would have been maxed out. Despite this, he’ll still go down as more of a fighter than a flopper and will always have a warm place in the hearts of the Dallas faithful…unless Saprissa meets up with FCD next year…

    Too early to sign his kids to academy deals before he up and leaves?

  2. It was probably time, but what a great player to have on your team. Yes, he was easy to dislike if he wasn’t on your team, but there’s more to that than just the antics. He was a leader, and produced. Even these last two home playoffs games, off the bench, he made things happen.

  3. I’m sad to see him go. He was a great asset as an experienced player on a young team. Any time he was substituted into a game, the crowd went crazy. We knew our scoring potential had just increased because Blas was on the field. My son will be crushed to hear the news. God speed, Blas Perez.

  4. Blas is a player that fought for FCD as hard as he fights for Panama. I had fun cheering him on and will miss having him on the team. Best of luck, Blas. We’ll miss you.
