Lopez Physical Passed, Introduction Monday

The Wizards have released a press announcement advising the media that the team will be introducing Argentine forward, Claudio Lopez, Monday at 1:30 central time. The team will be holding a conference call, as the team is currently down in Argentina for preseason. Prior to the call, there will be a press conference at the team's hotel in Argentina, where he will be presented to the Argentine media as a member of the Wizards. According to Robb Heineman on bigsoccer, he passed his physical today and signed his contract formally at 7:30 local time in Argentina. Lopez will become the team's first designated player officially tomorrow. Hillcrest Road has their story up now, including pictures of Lopez in his new uniform. Lopez will be wearing number 7 this season. The number had been previously worn this preseason by Chance Myers.

Welcome to Kansas City Claudio.
