The San Jose Earthquakes shed some weight from their roster on Monday, transferring one player while terminating the contract of another.
The Earthquakes announced Monday that midfielder Anthony Ampaipitakwong went to Buriram United of the Thai Premier League on an undisclosed transfer and they released Colombian midfielder Tressor Moreno after he expressed unhappiness with his lack of playing time this season.
In his second season as a professional, Ampaipitakwong did not make a single appearance in 2012 after seeing time in 12 games in his rookie year. Moreno did receive minutes this season, but he still wanted out despite playing in a dozen matches. Moreno had three assists this season, his first in MLS.
Per club and league policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed.
What do you think of the Earthquakes' decisions? Surprised they let Moreno go? How much, if anything, do you think San Jose got for Ampaipitakwong?
