It was only a few weeks ago when it looked like Erick “Cubo” Torres would be making an imminent move to Mexico.
But after talks fell through between the Houston Dynamo and Veracruz, Torres has become focused on remaining in MLS and honoring his contract with the Dynamo.
In an article published in the Houston Chronicle, Torres said he’s been “happy” that Mexican teams have expressed interest in him but that he’s also “happy to be here, and my intentions have always been to fulfill my contract with Houston.”
According to the report, Torres has two years left on his deal, the second of which is a possible club or player option.
The Mexican striker, who had 14 goals last year, added that there were some “personal reasons” as to why the deal with Veracruz didn’t materialize but he didn’t want to get into details.
“I am at a team where I have succeeded, there is a coaching staff that supports me, and for many other things I made the decision of staying here in Houston.”
