WATCH: Dressed as Star Wars’ Darth Vader, USMNT’s Gonzalez unveiled at Pachuca

Omar Gonzalez


Earlier we brought you the mildly-surprising news that USMNT defender Omar Gonzalez was transferring to Liga MX side Pachuca from the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The 27-year-old center back’s unveiling, however, was straight-up weird.

Perhaps it’s the idea of the United States as the “Evil Empire”, but the big American defender took the stage at Pachuca dressed as Darth Vader.

(Come on, Pachuca, at least get time-sensitive and toss the Kylo Ren costume on the big man. There’s a lot more potential for positives there).

Así fue la presentación de @Omar4Gonzalez como nuevo jugador de #ElÚnicoEnMi💙

Wonder if Jurgen Klinsmann likes the move from MLS to Liga MX; Will certainly be worth monitoring.
