FC Dallas trialist Michel Garbini Pereira is impressing coach Schellas Hyndman.

The left-back was recently with Aris of Greece.

"I think Michel is a very good defender," Hyndman told MLSsoccer.com last week. "I saw him five years ago or so when he came here to play against FCD with Atlético Paranaense, but of course you're just kind of looking at him.

"Two years ago, when I was in Spain, he played for Aris against Atlético Madrid in Madrid and he just kind of caught my eye, so when he became available and was willing to come in on trial I said, 'We have to take advantage of this.'"
