Everyone around Portland knew what the Danny Mwanga trade on Thursday meant – well, besides the rather quick end to the locally grown forward’s time at Jeld-Wen Field, a the former Oregon State and Portland area high school star struggled to fit in Caleb Porter’s system. It meant a new striker was on the way.
Now they know the name: it’s Frédéric Piquionne, a well-traveled 34-year-old who has spent a career at good-not-great sides of Europe.
Piquionne looks like a good fit to play alongside Jamaican international target forward Ryan Johnson for Porter.
The full release with more details on Piquionne, who had one French national team appearance, are here on the Timbers full release.
