WASHINGTON- Cuando en la fría mañana del martes 23 de marzo un desconocido jovencito hondureño de 17 años de edad llamado Andy Najar se incorporó a las prácticas de pretemporada del DC United en el estadio RFK, nadie pronosticó que poco más de siete meses después ese diminuto delantero sería nombrado Novato del Año de la MLS.

KEVIN PAYNE

D.C. United President & CEO:

We're all very proud of Andy winning the MLS Rookie of the Year Award, which he richly deserved. The last D.C. United player to win the award was Ben Olsen in 1998 -- the fact that each wore number 14, and each played with a fierce commitment and great skill and intelligence has not been lost on us. We look forward to Andy continuing to improve and expect him to have an even better second season.

NUEVA YORK- El joven hondureño Andy Najar cerró su año debutante en la MLS con  broche de oro al ganar el premio al Novato del Año 2010. A pesar de que su equipo D.C. United, no tuviera su mejor temporada este año, el estelar atacante -de 17 años de edad- brilló en las canchas emeleseras y se convirtió en el jugador más joven en recibir el premio.

La última vez que un delantero logró el honor fue cuando el goleador Clint Dempsey se lo llevó en el 2004.

WASHINGTON – Many D.C. United players face an uncertain fate this offseason as the club prepares for another round of rebuilding under a new head coach, but few more so than midfielder Kurt Morsink.

The Costa Rican says he’d like to stay in DC and contribute to next year’s side. But his MLS contract is up and after United’s historically poor 2010 campaign, he and most of his teammates have few guarantees that the yet-to-be-named incoming boss will have a place for them in the squad.

NEW YORK --- Most pundits made the Rookie of the Year award a two-horse race between New York defender Tim Ream and Philadelphia forward Danny Mwanga.  However, Andy Najar, D.C. United's 17-year-old phenom earned the award on Wednesday, becoming the first attacking player to win the honor since Clint Dempsey in 2004.
