MVP Molino rejoins USL’s Orlando City
USL PRO MVP T&T international Kevin Molino will play on for Orlando City as the club announced his re-signing, pending USSF approval. The signing comes just over a month before Orlando’s regular season home opener on April 14 against the Rochester Rhinos, solidifying the squad as the Lions continue its 2013 pre-season throughout March.
“There’s no place better than home, so to speak,” said Molino. “This is the first place I played outside of Trinidad and I look forward to scoring more goals and hopefully winning MVP honors in 2013.”
Molino rejoins the Lions after an outstanding season on the field for Orlando. The 22-year-old midfielder claimed the 2012 USL PRO MVP honours after completing a year that saw him lead Orlando to a 50-goal season, with an average of more than two per game. He finished the season with seven assists and three goals, but more importantly stretched opponent’s defences to create more opportunities for the Lions frontline.
Molino represented T&T 13 times in his young career. A key figure for Orlando since the team’s beginning in 2011, Molino has totalled more than 2,000 minutes in 44 games played for City over the span of two regular seasons. Molino tested the free agency waters over the 2013 pre-season, spending time in Europe with PSV Eindhoven of the Netherlands and Zulte Waregem of Belgium along with scoring a goal for his country in the Caribbean Cup against the Dominican Republic, on December 11.
The winger will immediately add to the already strong 2013 Orlando City side that coach Adrian Heath has called “his best team yet.” On top of the Molino signing, the Lions have added Jean Alexandre, Bryan Burke, Freddie Braun, Brian Fekete and Jonathan Mendoza, all within the last month, bringing the roster to a total of 18.
