Former D.C. United player Guy Kpene was in attendance tonight for DCU’s friendly vs. Chivas de Guadalajara. Kpene rocked the Black-and-Red from 2007-08 before making the move to the Houston Dynamo. The former United forward then went on to play for the USL PDL side, Long Island Rough Riders before making the decision to return to Dowling College and get his MBA in corporate finance.
“I finished my masters, and I’m looking for a job.” said Kpene. “I want to do finance, but I still have love for the game, so I don’t know. We will see.”
Kpene had always planned on going back to school, even while playing professionally.
“Oh, I always knew it. I was always good at school,” he said. “I knew at some point I was going to stop [playing soccer] and go to school again.”
Also spotted in the stands tonight was D.C. United legend Jaime Moreno, who is set to be inducted into United’s Hall of Tradition in September. Moreno enjoyed the match cheering along with the Barra Brava.
