Colorado Rapids announced today that midfielder Juan Ramírez has been loaned to Club Atlético Talleres of the Argentine First Division through June 30, 2017.
“Juan is a young player with huge potential and we believe this is a great opportunity for him to get some playing time in an environment that he knows very well,” said Paul Bravo, VP of Soccer Operations and Technical Director.
Prior to the start of the 2016 MLS campaign, Ramirez was loaned to U.D. Almería of the Spanish Second Division for a period of six months. He tallied one goal in 16 matches for the Spanish side.
Ramirez appeared in 27 matches (15 starts), adding a goal and three assists during his first season with the Rapids in 2015. His only goal of the season came in stoppage time of the 3-1 win over Real Salt Lake, which eventually proved to be the difference in the battle for the 2015 Rocky Mountain Cup.
The 5’8” midfielder also amassed 81 games for Argentinos Juniors (2011-15), scoring five goals before his arrival in Major League Soccer.
