The Atlanta Silverbacks have signed Honduran midfielder Danilo Turcios, pending USSF and ITC approval, the club announced Monday.
The 33-year-old attacking midfielder comes to the Silverbacks from Honduran giants C.D. Olimpia, where Silverbacks Head Coach Alex Pineda Chacón starred for 10 seasons during his playing career.
“It’s a rare opportunity for any club to be able to bring in a player with as much quality and international experience as Danilo,” Chácon said. “I’m very familiar with him on and off the field, and I can tell you that he’ll be an incredible addition to our team in many different ways.”
Turcios brings extensive international experience to the Silverbacks, appearing 85 times for the Honduran national team, including a pair of 2010 FIFA World Cup games. He has also represented Honduras in the Olympics, CONCACAF Gold Cup, and Copa America.
