Dominic Oduro On Being Traded: I Don't Think There's Anything Personal

That's a pretty good chance. It's a good play. Great play by Geoff. Good ball by Brad. It's a chance that you should really expect to score

News broke earlier today that Houston Dynamo forward Dominic Oduro had been traded to the Chicago Fire in exchange for forward Calen Carr. The Houston Chronicle was able to reach Oduro for comments on the deal. 

Here's what the forward had to say about being traded.

At the end of the day it is what it is. The coaches know what they want for their teams. Most teams around this league are trying to restructure their teams right now. I don't think there's anything personal. It's something that both teams are dealing with in terms of making their teams better.

Dynamo Head Coach Dominic Kinnear also discussed the trade.

In 2009 when we beat Seattle, his play against Seattle for me was some of his better moments here. So I want to say thanks to him. We wish him luck

 

Unfortunately for Oduro, the last memory Dynamo fans are likely to have of him is his horrific miss against the Philadelphia Union in the 2011 MLS opening game. 

Both Coach Kinnear and defender Andre Hainault commented on the miss after the 1-0 loss.

Coach Kinnear

That's a pretty good chance. It's a good play. Great play by Geoff. Good ball by Brad. It's a chance that you should really expect to score.

Andre Hainault

Dom had a good chance right there. That should have been a goal. With that being said, we had other chances. The game could have been different.
