FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman says he'll be patient with new signing Mauro Diaz.
The young Argentine arrived in Dallas on Wednesday.
Hyndman told dallasnews.com: â€śI think his vision definitely is going to be something thatâ€™s very helpful to us but itâ€™s still an adjustment to this league. Itâ€™s going to be an adjustment,â€ť Hyndman said. â€śItâ€™s wintertime right now in Argentina, so itâ€™s an adjustment to the heat, adjustment to new coach, new teammates and then also adjusting to the athletic, physical play in the league. Weâ€™re really excited to have him but weâ€™re also a little cautious that we donâ€™t get him hurt.
â€śHeâ€™s a player that grew up in a very, very good football environment with River Plate. River Plate is known as a factory where they generate and develop so many players. So heâ€™s part of that factory, that development and thereâ€™s things they have to do to stay involved with the club,â€ť Hyndman said. â€śWhether itâ€™s vision, whether itâ€™s technical ability, if youâ€™ll look at a lot of the Argentine players, very few of them are big, strong, athletic players but theyâ€™re very quick and theyâ€™re very good decision makers with good vision.â€ť
