The 2011 first-round SuperDraft pick is off to Sweden after requesting more playing time.
FC Dallas technical director Bobby Clavijo has announced via the club’s official website that Bobby Warshaw has been loaned to Swedish Superetten side Angelholms FC.
Since being drafted in the first round of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft by Dallas, the 17th overall pick, Warshaw made a fair contribution to his new team during his debut season, notching 17 appearances.
After featuring six times for Dallas last season, Warshaw suffered a major set-back when he broke his foot in the dying minutes of a Reserve League match against Sporting Kansas City.
After almost a year spent recovering, Warshaw managed to accumulate just 130 minutes on the pitch in 2013 and just one start. His last appearance came on June 29th away to the Philadelphia Union as a substitute.
According to Dallas Morning News and Sports Day Warshaw had approached Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman about receiving more playing time, so Clavijo acted quickly to find him a loan club as first team football at Dallas was not on the cards.
Angelholms are currently sat eighth in the Swedish second division, having just lost 4-0 to third placed Falkenberg after four wins in a row.
Warshaw’s transition to Sweden will no doubt be eased by the presence of another American on the Angelholms roster – former Chicago Fire and Portland Timbers goalkeeper Matt Pyzdrowski.
