By the way, Diogo will be playing for former Zip Blair Gavin who is currently FC Tulsa’s head coach.



from the link in the X post above…

Head Coach Blair Gavin is equally thrilled “Diogo is an exciting addition to the team with his drive and passion for the game,” Gavin said, “He has a unique ability to beat players off the dribble and unlock teams in the final third.”

Pacheco’s journey to professional soccer started at the University of Akron, where he played four seasons before joining Minnesota United FC 2 in 2022.

Amazing longevity in MLS for some all time great zips...

I believe that the 2024 season will be Wil Trapp's 12th year in MLS.

Wil's Minnesota United team mate, Zarek Valentin.....will begin his 14th year in professional soccer in 2024.  I believe that Zarek played 3 years in a Norway professional league.    I believe that this will be Zarek's 11th year in MLS.

I think that Nashville's Teal Bunbury started his MLS career in 2010....so 2024 should be his 15th year in the league.

The spectacular Darlington Nagbe will be starting his 14th year in MLS in the 2024 season.


I believe that Evan Bush had to play a few years in either USL league one or the NASL before he debuted in MLS.   I believe that he first signed with an MLS team in late 2011.

Scott Caldwell joined MLS at the same time as Wil Trapp......so Goal scorer Scotty also had more than 10 years in MLS.


The speedy Jonathan Lewis is only 26 years old but the 2024 season will be JLew's 8th year in MLS.

The great Richmond Laryea (better known as Richie)......will start his 9th year in professional soccer in 2024.

I believe that Perry Kitchen....played 11 years of pro soccer....8 in MLS....and 3 in Scottish or Danish Leagues.


and of course, when you talk about the all time greats.....that have played in multiple leagues.....including.....the English Premier League, MLS and the highest level Turkish league....we must talk about DeAndre Yedlin   DeAndre started his career in 2013...so 2024...will be his 12th year in the highest levels of professional soccer.   Of course, DeAndre has also played in multiple world cups for USA.  I believe that DeA has more than 80 caps with USMNT.


Soccer is a tough, physical game.....great credit to so many former zips......for having careers.....lasting well past a decade in pro soccer.

I don't hear much about Joao Moutinho since he moved to the Italian Leagues....but Joao has been playing in MLS or Italy since 2018.


fknbuflobo.....will give me grief...if I don't mention Aodhan Quinn.  Aodhan Quinn (in my humble opinion) has been good enough to play in MLS.   2024 will be Aodhan's 11th year of being a truly great, dominating player in USL.
