MLS CAREER

2015

  • Young Argentine Juan Ramírez had a number of notable records to his name in his first season in MLS. A bizarre breakaway in stoppage time at the end of the 3-1 home win over Real Salt Lake, ultimately proved to be the difference in the battle for the Rocky Mountain Cup.
  • The slippery attacking midfielder, and Young DP, was the most fouled Rapids player in 2015. He suffered 73 fouls, with Dillon Powers (51) a distant second.
  • His speed would often be a real threat, and this was highlighted in the 2-0 win at Sporting Kansas City (10/21). Ramírez came off the bench for the final 16 minutes and had a hand in both goals, with two of his three assists for the season.

OTHER

  • The 5-foot-8, 150-pound player is a fast, skillful left-sided midfielder who amassed 81 games with the Argentine side, Argentinos Juniors, scoring five goals.
  • Most comfortable on the left side and showing elusiveness on the ball, he can also play on the right side.
  • Made his first appearance for the Rapids in a preseason match against New England Revolution at the Desert Diamond Cup in Tucson, a day after completing his move to the club.
