COMMERCE CITY, Colorado – After nearly eight years in the English Premier League, Honduras international Maynor Figueroa is moving on, signing Friday with Major League Soccer’s Colorado Rapids.
The 32-year-old defender initially joined Wigan Athletic on loan in 2008 from Honduran side Olimpia, but the deal was made permanent the following year. He played 200 games for the Latics and was a member of the side that won the 2013 FA Cup, missing the final against Manchester City with a groin injury.
In June 2013, Figueroa signed as a free agent with Hull City, where he played 45 games over two seasons.
Figueroa has earned 113 caps for Honduras, scoring four goals. He has played in three CONCACAF Gold Cups (2005, 5 games; 2007, 4 games; 2015, 3 games) and two FIFA World Cups (2010, 3 games; 2014, 3 games). His international career also includes 35 appearances over the course of three World Cup Qualifying campaigns and an Olympic Games (2012, 4 games).
