ROGER Espinoza has, as expected, rejoined Sporting Kansas City in the MLS.

The Honduran international was last week granted a release from the final six months of his Latics contract to return to the United States.

“I’m thrilled to be back in Kansas City,” Espinoza said.

“I always knew I would come back some day and I could not be more excited to re-join this club.

“I’m ready to get back to work and help this team win another championship.”

Sporting Kansas City manager Peter Vermes added: “Roger was a big part of us establishing ourselves in Kansas City and Major League Soccer.

“Now he returns to a club that has continued its evolution and he has the ability to help take us to the next level.

“It is rare for a player to leave a club and then come back, but this situation from day one has been great and we are very happy for Roger to don the Sporting Kansas City jersey again.”
