Holgersson to Wigan, Carney to Newcastle Jets
February 3, 2014
Former Metro vice captain S. Markus Holgersson has signed with Wigan Athletic of the English Championship (second division). The central defender and RBNY had agreed to part ways after the season. "It's a good step for me in my career -- a step up I believe from the MLS," Holgersson said.
Best of luck, the last of the Scandinavians!
Another released defender, David Carney, has signed with the Newcastle Jets of the Australian A-League. "He's played at the highest level for club and country and he'll bring a wealth of experience and leadership to the team," Newcastle's coach said.
