VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver Whitecaps FC solidified their back line on Friday with the acquisition of experienced centre back Érik Godoy.
The 25-year-old Argentine joins Whitecaps FC on a one-year loan with an option to purchase from Argentina’s Club Atlético Colón. The transaction was completed with the use of Targeted Allocation Money.
“Érik is a dynamic centre back with really good experience for his age,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Marc Dos Santos. “The Argentine league is an aggressive and intense league, a very competitive type of soccer. In watching Érik and talking to him, we felt that he suits well what we want to do here.
