Spartak Moscow striker Movsysian on Real Salt Lake’s radar

Real Salt Lake head coach Jeff Cassar has indicated he is interested in bringing striker Yura Movsisyan back to the Major League Soccer club.


Movsisyan made 53 appearances and scored 15 goals for Real Salt Lake between 2007 and 2009, winning the MLS Cup in his final season at the club.

Cassar told local radio station ESPN700 that Movsisyan, who currently plays for Spartak Moscow, is one of a number of options the Utah-based club are looking at during the summer transfer window.

"Yura's a player we're very familiar with," Cassar said of the Armenia international.

"Obviously we won a championship when he was here. He's gone on to do fantastic things.

"But we are in contact with him, as well as with a lot of players on their status with their clubs, or if they're a free agent.

"He's just one player that we're interested in, but at the end of the day, he belongs to another team."
