WASHINGTON - He has been with the Union for only about 48 hours, but when speaking, he already refers to his new team as "we," "us" and "ours."
Danny Cruz, the latest Union signing in the deal that sent Lionard Pajoy to D.C. United, made an emotional return to RFK Stadium to start Sunday night's match for his new club - against his former. He played 57 minutes in his debut for the Union, before succumbing to leg cramps.
"I think emotions were running high from the beginning," Cruz said. "I was excited to be back here playing regardless of the side I was on, and I am more proud to be here now and hopefully be a part of something special in the coming years."
