Marcus Tracy’s contract will not be renewed by Aalborg BK

Striker Marcus Tracy, plagued by injuries for the last two yeasr at Aalborg in Denmark, will not have his contract renewed when it expires over the winter break.

It’s not a surprising development although obviously unfortunate for the once-promising prospect. Tracy joined Aalborg after winning the 2008 Hermann Trophy as college soccer’s best player. However, after joining Aalborg in January of 2009, Tracy played just 15 matches before experiencing a series of issues with his knees (tendinitis in both knees).

The 24 year-old is free to look for a new club now although the knee issues may hold him back generally in his pursuit of professional soccer.

I think that he will have opportunities in MLS (even as a 25 year-old prospect by the time he’d be eligible to play) as a former elite college prospect if he chooses to pursue them. I think that he’d enter MLS in a weighted lottery (see Cody Arnoux) although I’ll admit that I lack the law degree necessary to fully comprehend MLS roster rules.

    Do the Dynamo still have claim to his rights? I remember the still used a pick on him after he had decided to try his luck in Denmark.

    My understanding of the MLS Superdraft rules (see II-C >>>http://www.mlssoccer.com/2011-mls-roster-rules) is that Houston’s rights expired on December 31, 2010.

    Any idea where he will end up?

    I haven’t heard anything about him even trialing with an MLS team so I’m wondering if his knee is causing him to hang it up.
