Him and Martinez were the main reason they won the MLS cup. He breaks at such pace with the ball he'd be ideal for any team wanting to counter attack.

They've seemingly already replaced him as a D/P with Pity Martinez from River Plate, but fans are anxious about the links of Gonzalez Pirez to Boca.
