According to several reports, the long mystery surrounding John Brooks’ next destination after departing Wolfsburg might finally be solved, with La Liga club RCD Mallorca set to sign the former USMNT defender.
Yunus Musah and Shaq Moore were the only Yanks in action in Spain this weekend, with both putting in solid substitute performances for their teams, however with mixed outcomes.
Yunus Musah’s experimental transition to Valencia’s front line yielded tepid results, while Matthew Hoppe and Mallorca joined Matt Miazga’s Alaves in La Liga’s bottom three.
Matthew Hoppe had his first appearance in two months, albeit a short one, in Mallorca’s loss to Barcelona, while Shaq Moore also had time to disturb a couple blades of grass for Tenerife in an otherwise dead weekend for Americans in Spain.
Sergiño Dest did his part to help Barcelona keep their grip on the race for La Liga’s best-of-the-rest award, while Yunus Musah and Valencia put in a lackluster performance ahead of their upcoming Cup final.
Recent American convert Samuel Shashoua started building his longshot USMNT case with a goal for Tenerife while Jonathan Gomez and Real Sociedad had a weekend to forget, as once again all the Spanish action for Americans was in La Liga 2.
Yunus Musah and Jonathan Gomez both put in solid shifts for their teams in Spain, as Valencia and Real Sociedad B came away with victories.
Matthew Hoppe was a late attacking reinforcement for Mallorca in a losing effort, as they fell to Real Sociedad in a game which saw Jonathan Gomez promoted to first team bench.
Sergiño Dest put in a strong shift at left back for Barcelona in their critical win over Bilbao while Jonathan Gomez maintained his starting spot for Xabi Alonso in Real Sociedad B’s victory.
Sergiño Dest and Barcelona easily won their lopsided battle at Valencia, while Matt Miazga and Alaves put up a valiant fight against Real Madrid before predictably falling well short thanks to a late surge from the likely champions.
