Club Captain Sells Soul to China
- San Antonio He was brought in to carry the torch from the legend. Obafemi Martins came to San Antonio and set the league on fire. He took the torch and ran with it when Theirry Henry retired. On Sunday morning the club learned, via Twitter, that Martins was headed to China. No call, note, or anything resembling communication. Hell, not even a text from his agent. "To say we are shocked is not even close. We're pissed. As stand up as he has been in his time here in San Antonio, and for everything he's done for this club ... to just up and leave in the middle of the night without even giving us the respect of letting us know he was leaving? That shows the true character of Obafemi Martins."
The Battle FO scrambled in the wake of the news as the club was suddenly left with an open Designated Player slot. An emergency meeting was called and it was decided to name a new DP rather than try to shop around the DP slot so close to the pre-draft trade deadline.
Adam Kwarasey will take the 3rd DP slot that was vacated by Obafemi Martins.
