There was a time when David Ferreira’s vision and ability to hold the ball under pressure drove FC Dallas to a place it had never been: into the MLS Cup final.
That was 2010, the year Ferreira also gained his highest individual achievement, the league’s Most Valuable Player award.
Then again, there was a time (a far more recent time) when Ferreira more or less got his manager fired. That was last year as then-FCD coach Schellas Hyndman stuck with his playmaker way too long, depending on the old Ferreira to re-emerge – and probably damaging his relationship with other players along the way. After all, the men on the field saw that Ferreira was a shell of his former self, as the legs had seemed to go oh-so-quickly.
The two Ferreiras were miles apart.
Technically, the Colombian playmaker, 34, could have signed with another MLS club (although surely at a reduced rate) after Dallas declined his option in December.
That’s not going to happen; now comes word that Ferreira has signed with Colombia’s Independiente de Santa Fe
