FRISCO, Texas (Friday, Sept. 13) – FC Dallas has added French midfielder Peter Luccin to its active roster, the club announced today.
Luccin, 34, started his career in the youth system of French club AS Cannes before playing 118 matches in the French Ligue 1 between stints with Bordeaux, Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain. The defensive midfielder transferred into Spain’s La Liga in 2001, where he started a total of 215 matches with Celta de Vigo, Atlético Madrid, Real Zaragoza and Racing Santander.
The French midfielder suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during preseason and had surgery to repair the injury on March 1. Luccin made his return to the pitch in a Reserve League match versus Red Bull New York, scoring one of three FC Dallas goals in the Sept. 3 contest.
In addition, FC Dallas has moved French forward Eric Hassli to the disabled list. Hassli has battled a back injury all season, starting just four games and making 15 appearances for FC Dallas. He has one assist on the season.
