After an early exit from the MLS playoffs last year, Sporting Kansas City is making changes for this season.
They announced their biggest off-season move Tuesday, signing Roger Espinoza.
Espinoza played for Sporting for five years before going overseas to play in the English Premier League.
"This is the age where the majority of players hit their peak,” said the 28-year-old at a news conference at Sporting's office in Kansas City, Mo.
Sporting’s season opener is on March 8 against the New York Red Bulls at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan.
