[USL PRO: Week 4] Just two weeks after hiring 30-year-old Maryland assistant Michael Dellorusso as its head coach, Arizona United -- the former Phoenix FC -- opens its USL PRO season under new ownership on Saturday night at the Peoria Sports Complex against OK Energy FC. The hastily assembled squad is loaded with young players, including one-time phenom prospect Charles Renken.

2014 Arizona United:
Just a month ago, franchise rights to USL PRO's troubled Phoenix team changed hands again as Arizona United took over for American Soccer Marketing, whose rights were discontinued just months after  FC Phoenix's original owners were kicked out of the league.

Arizona United, the last team to start the 2014 season, has put together a team that includes one-time  phenom prospect Charles Renken, who left U.S. residency with Joe Gyau to sign with German club Hoffenheim but whose career has been derailed by knee troubles. After leaving the Portland Timbers, he played briefly in the lower reaches of Swedish soccer.

Other signings include London Woodberry and Bradlee Baladez, both former FC Dallas Homegrown players, and Jonathan Top, who has joined the club on loan from FC Dallas, as well as Matt Kassel, Tyler Ruthven and Paolo DelPiccolo, young players with MLS experience.
