Twitter reacts to… Cerén’s exit & García’s Orlando City SC arrival



While most of us thought that José Aja was going to be Orlando City SC‘s sole mid-season arrival, Deadline Day saw the Lions swap Darwin Cerén for Matías Pérez García.

The trade with San Jose Earthquakes now means an additional attacking midfielder joins Orlando City SC‘s ranks with Jason Kreis seemingly content with his remaining defensive midfield options.

It’s certainly an interesting move that in all honesty took everybody by surprise with Darwin Cerén representing a member of the Lions’ old guard having previously played for the club in its USL format.

But with a new coach in Jason Kreis comes a new direction and with Servando Carrasco and Antonio Nocerino starting the Lions’ last game against New England Revolution, it is now that duo plus Cristian Higuita who will fight it out in central midfield.

Arriving at Camping World Stadium is an experienced attacking midfielder in the form of Matías Pérez García.

Now 31-years-old, the tricky Argentine will undoubtedly suit Orlando City SC‘s expansive style of play but faces a battle on his hands to earn a regular starting berth with Kaká, Kevin Molino and Brek Shea to contend with.

One thing that’s for sure is that Orlando City SC fans are divided on whether the club’s Deadline Day business was worthwhile or not.

In a poll ran by Orlando City UK in the immediate aftermath of the swap deal, it appears many City supporters are willing to wait and see what happens however.

As well as running a poll, Orlando City UK also collected some of the best tweets from social as Orlando City SC fans reacted to the Darwin Cerén for Matías Pérez García trade.
