Jaime Moreno: 'An Original Legend'
Washington Post, October 25th, 2010 1:51PM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

The Washington Post published a tribute to Jaime Moreno in its Saturday sports section, before he played his last game with United and scored his 133rd regular-season goal against Toronto FC.

"He has been a constant and provided us with a constant level of excellence," United president Kevin Payne said. "I don't know if we will ever see anyone like him again in our league."

Steven Goff wrote, "Moreno's playing manner mirrored his personality: consistent and understated but with devilish features. On the field, Moreno offered cheeky chip shots over rooted goalkeepers and blinding footwork to dodge sprawling defenders. In the locker room and on road trips, he belied his demeanor by serving as team prankster. 'If anyone is missing anything,' former teammate and current United assistant Mark Simpson said, 'you go to Jaime first.'"

Moreno is pondering whether to take a job in the D.C. United front office or return to his native Bolivia to finish his playing career.
