Tampa Bay Rowdies terminate two former US Youth Internationals

KartikReport_TBIn a surprise move the Tampa Bay Rowdies have released Omar Salgado and  Gale Agbossoumonde. Both players are former US Youth Internationals brought to the club by former Manager Thomas Rongen who also managed the US U-20 Men’s National Team for years. The Rowdies signing of former Orlando City attacker Long Tan (Who played for the Rowdies in 2010) on loan from Arizona of USL made Salgado expendable, but the Agbossoumonde (“Boss” ) situation is a little more curious.

As we find out more about why “Boss” was released we will report it.

The Rowdies host league-leaders Ottawa tomorrow night at Al Lang Stadium. Tampa Bay trails Fort Lauderdale in the race for the final NASL Championship spot on goal difference and a head-to-head tiebreaker.

Full release below.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (October 9, 2015) — The Tampa Bay Rowdies have made two further changes to their roster ahead of the North American Soccer League roster freeze this week, removing forward Omar Salgado and defender Gale Agbossoumonde from the squad.

Salgado’s loan from Tigres UANL in Mexico’s Liga MX has been ended early. Salgado has returned to Tigres, effective immediately.

Agbossoumonde has been released from his contract.

The Rowdies thank both players for their contributions this year and wish them good luck as they continue their careers.
