Gyorio says no to initial offer from Sporting Kansas City

Comments Off on Gyorio says no to initial offer from Sporting Kansas City

The agent for Canadian midfielder Mozzi Gyorio has confirmed that an initial contract offer from Sporting Kansas City has been turned down — and that the midfielder is still on the market.

After being cut on the final day of camp by Canadian U-23 coach Tony Fonseca, Gyorio has headed to Halifax, rather than back to Kansas City.

Before Gyorio went to the Canadian Olympic camp, he was offered a three-year deal by the MLS club, where he was on trial during the preseason.That offer was believed to have been at or close to the league minimum. But his agent confirmed to The 11 on Monday that the Gyorio camp was “waiting for a better offer” from SKC.

Gyorio developed into one of the best wide players in NASL last season, often playing out on the wing for the then-named FC Tampa Bay. His contract wasn’t picked up for 2012 when it was clear that he wanted to explore other options, whether in MLS or Europe.

Gyorio was born in Hungarian speaking part of Serbia. His family then moved to Hungary and then later to Prince Edward Island. Because he has a Hungarian passport, he has options to play in Europe.

It was through the Hungarian-heritage connections with SKC coach Peter Vermes — whose dad played top-level soccer in Hungary when the nation was a world power in the game — that agents John Horvath and Laszlo Keresi were able to find the trial for their client.
