MLS: Honduran-born forward Saul Martinez allocated to Miami

Honduran-born forward Saul Martinez has been allocated to the Miami Fusion, Fusion chief operating officer Betty D'Anjolell announced Feb. 19. Martinez, 23, played the last two seasons for the Long Island Rough Riders of the USL's A-League, recording 13 goals and three assists. He started his professional career in 1995 with Melgar of the Honduran Second Division, where he played for one season. Because he holds a green card Martinez will not count against the Fusion's foreign-player limit. "Saul is a forward with good speed and mobility," said Fusion head coach Ivo Wortmann. "He's young and has potential. Now, he needs to gain experience in MLS."
