FC Dallas thrilled to have Clavijo on board

FC Dallas chief Doug Quinn admits they're excited about the arrival of Fernando Clavijo as new technical director.

Clavijo moves from his role with Brazilian management giants Traffic and Quinn is convinced he will make a massive impact.

Quinn told bigdsoccer.com: "He knows exactly how to do all of that. In his spot with Traffic Sports as an agent in Miami and Central America, Latin America, he knows everybody and in real time knows everybody because the names and faces and everything changes at clubs and agencies. The relationships he has with them are right now.

"The relationships he has with Major League Soccer, and Major League soccer moves a little differently, the people up in New York I kind of know those as well, but he knows both games. He knows the college game, he scouted college, he knows MLS and probably best of all is that he and Schellas are very like minded and add that to the fact that Dan Hunt has basically been our pseudo-technical director for the past X months. He and Fernando are very like minded.

"Also, his meeting with Clark Hunt, the chairman, went incredibly well. All of us recognized his character, all of us recognized his unique skill sets and all of us recognize he would be a perfect fit for us."
