â€śKenny has been an outstanding player for us over the last four seasons as well as a tremendous ambassador for FC Dallas in his time with the club, and we wish him the best in Munich,â€ť General Manager Michael Hitchcock said. â€śKenny indicated to us that he wanted to return to Europe when his contract expired next year. The timing of this transfer allows Kenny to continue his career overseas while providing our club with valuable resources for new acquisitions.â€ť
â€śThis transfer gives us the resources to continue to build the team and hopefully bring in another talented forward who will be a good fit for our system,â€ť Head Coach Schellas Hyndman said. â€śI have sincerely enjoyed coaching Kenny in my time with FC Dallas. He is a good teammate, a skilled goal scorer and a great person. We wish him well.â€ť
