FC Dallas head coach Schellas Hyndman is glad to see South American import Marcelo Saragosa back on the training pitch.

"It's great to see Marcelo (Saragosa) back," Hyndman said.

"He was a player that we had pencilled in for that right fullback position. We trained him and also felt comfortable letting Adrian (Serioux) go back home because we had Marcelo.

"Then, as soon as we do that, Marcelo's knee starts to hurt, so he went through surgery.

"We noticed him back out here last week and it was great to see him. He says he's ready, but any soccer player is ready. Hopefully we'll have an opportunity to get him back on the field shortly."
