Albert Rusnak announced his departure from Real Salt Lake via Instagram on Saturday, marking his position as a free agent.
The Slovak midfielder first signed for the Western Conference team on January 6, 2017, and transferred from the Eredivisie team FC Groningen. He then rewrote a multi-year contract until 2021, which kept him on the list as a designated player.
“I want to take the time to let everyone know that the last 5 years of playing in front of you and representing Claret-and-Cobalt have truly been an honor,” he wrote.
“My time at Real Salt Lake is over and while it is now time to say goodbye, please know that I will cherish our memories, how we overcame many obstacles, in the face of immeasurable odds. Thank you for your passion, your support and the love you expressed to me, my family and the team “, he wrote.
Rusnak scored 41 goals and 39 assists in 140 games played for Real Salt Lake before leaving.
As one of the league’s highest profile free agents this low season, the midfielder is linked to several clubs. The most prominent seem to be the Seattle Sounders and DC United.
The Western Conference side also temporarily lifted the tag on head coach Pablo Mastroeni after he stepped in to replace Freddy Juarez as a temporary solution at the end of August.
The teams are set to return to action on February 26 to kick off the Major League Soccer season 2022.
