MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] The Chicago Fire has signed left back Deris Umanzor, the second former player whom Fire boss Carlos de los Cobos coached on the El Salvador national team to join the MLS team.

Young Pole Krzysztof Krol was signed earlier this winter to fill the vacancy left by the departure of Gonzalo Segares to Cyprus.

Midfielder Mike Banner started the first game of the season against New York at left back, Krol played there last week against Colorado, but the job would seem to be the 5-foot-7 Umanzor's for the taking.

Chicago signed Umanzor, 30, from Club Deportivo Aguila. He played five games for de los Cobos at left back during the 2009 Hexagonal, including the second qualifier against the USA in Sandy, Utah.

"We are excited to have Deris Umanzor join the Chicago Fire," Fire Technical Director Frank Klopas said on the team's web site. "Umanzor will provide depth in the Fire defense. He brings additional experience to our backline after an impressive 12-year career in El Salvador."

Salvadoran winger Julio Martinez is on loan to the Fire from Mexican club Leon.
