Former FC Dallas defender Clarence Goodson won't be anchoring the San Jose Earthquakes defense as the Quakes had hoped when they selected him in the expansion draft. Goodson, who is out of contract, will instead make a run at securing a contract in Europe.
San Jose revealed this pretty significant information at the bottom of the same press release that announced the trade to acquire goalkeeper Joe Cannon. A bit of good news-bad news for San Jose.
The Goodson departure does help make FC Dallas look a bit better after leaving him exposed in the expansion draft.Link: http://www.soccerbyives.net/soccer_by_ives/2008/01/goodson-says-go.html
