The San Jose Earthquakes have been lacking a key part of their midfield for a couple of seasons now in the form of an attacking midfielder. That all could change here soon as the club has signed Colombian attacking midfielder Tressor Moreno.
More upgrades in the middle as the @SJEarthquakes are set to announce the signing of Colombian attacking midfielder Tressor Moreno.— Robert Jonas (@robertjonas) February 2, 2012
The 33-year old midfielder comes from Chilean side Santiago Wanderers. He has played in Europe with French side Metz as well as some time in Mexico and South America. During his time in Mexico he played for Necaxa, Veracruz and San Luis. While in South America, the Colombian has played for Colombian side Deportivo Cali as well as Brazilian side Bahia.
Moreno has also been called up to the Colombia national team 32 times in his playing career, where he scored seven goals between 2000 and 2007. He played with Colombia in the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he was named one of the tournaments top players.
Moreno will be expected to help beef up the Quakes attack that centers around striker Chris Wondolowski. Giving Wondolowski a little more freedom will be a big part of what Moreno should be expected to do for the Quakes.
