ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico United will begin to shape their 2021 roster this week.
Kalen Ryden is expected to return next season.
Ryden was named First Team All League selection in 2020, team defensive MVP and a finalist for the USL Defensive Player of the Year.
Ryden led a stellar backline that helped earn six shutouts.
"This is clearly a place that players want to be it's a place that I wanted to be, you know, I felt comfortable coming here and I've had a relationship with Troy through the previous years, and he was someone that I wanted to play for,” Ryden said.
United is expected to make more roster announcements this week.
