Houston Dynamo FC won’t re-sign Oscar Boniek Garcia

Houston Dynamo FC midfielder Oscar Boniek Garcia will enter the free-agent market after his contract expires at the end of the league season.

Garcia and the club made the announcement on Monday.

Garcia, 37, has spent his entire 10-season MLS career with the Dynamo. He has amassed 18,508 minutes played in 266 games in all competitions to rank fourth in team history in both categories. He also has 41 assists, the club’s second-highest career mark.

“It is difficult, very sad that after 10 years with you, I’m saying goodbye to what has been my second home,” Garcia said on social media. “The Houston Dynamo is an institution of which I am very proud, in which I have grown and enjoyed to the fullest during each year, month, week, day, hour, minute and second that I have belonged to it.

“Special thanks to the fans, to each of you, for accepting me, supporting me, motivating me, living with me every moment. For you, I tried to get up every time I fell, and when I did, I always tried to stand up and be even stronger.”

Garcia signed with the Dynamo on June 7, 2012. The team missed the 2021 playoffs, which will start Saturday.
