Major League Soccer side FC Dallas have announced the departure of CONCACAF Gold Cup star Kenny Cooper to German club 1860 Munich.
The 24-year-old scored crucial goals for the United States national team at this month’s Gold Cup, with the interest of the 2.Bundesliga side as result.
“Kenny has been an outstanding player for us over the last four seasons as well as a tremendous ambassador for FC Dalles in his time with the club, and we with him the best in Munich,” Dallas General Manager Michael Hitchcock said.
Cooper, whose father and namesake played for the Blackburn Rovers reserves in the late 60’s, began his career at Academica Coimbra on loan from Manchester United in 2004, and joined Oldham Athletic on another loan deal a year later. Since 2006, the forward played for Dallas with 40 goals in 93 games.
