Miguel Montano Invited to MLS Montreal Impact Trial

Miguel Montano may not be in Rave Green next year.

As the Montral Impact transition from not very good NASL side to expansion MLS team they have invited 25 players to trial and attempt to be on their inaugural roster. Miguel Montano, who the Seattle Sounders had loaned to the Impact, will be staying with them for their trial camp. There are a few other players familar to those that follow the Sounders. Former trialists Wes Knight and Bratislav Ristic both got the invite, as did CSD Comunicaciones midfielder Jose Javier Del Aguila. There are also a handful of NASL and USL vets who will try to use expansion to get a leg up.

Montreal looks to make news Monday afternoon as well when they will be announcing their first MLS player signing. Reports are that former Inter Milan player Nelson Rivas will be a Designated Player for the team. Signing a DP centerback is a bold move to start a team. Looking at former MLS trialists and castoffs is not. Players like Osvaldo Alonso and Sebastien Le Toux were told they weren't good enough for MLS prior to becoming Seattle Sounders, if Montreal can get even one man of that quality from this camp they'll be off on a strong foot.
