Fountas before contract termination at DC United

Fountas before contract termination at DC United

The Americans show no mercy when it comes to disciplinary slip-ups. Therefore, his last derailment should cost Taxiarchis Fountas his involvement with DC United in the US capital Washington. As “The Athletic” reports, the striker and the club are in negotiations for an amicable termination of the contract. The MLS is said to be investigating the 27-year-old for racism allegations.

Fountas, who moved to Washington from Rapid Vienna a year and a half ago, is said to have insulted his black team-mate Nigel Robertha in an argument with the N-word two weeks ago, who then hit him with a foam roller. Both were immediately suspended by the club.

In the case of Fountas, the fact that he made the headlines last fall when he is said to have racially insulted opponent Damion Lowe (then at Inter Miami, now at Philadelphia Union) makes things even more difficult. Coach Wayne Rooney immediately replaced the Greek.

Now, after 38 games and 18 goals for DC United, Fountas’ MLS adventure is likely to come to an end. The nimble striker had his most successful time at Rapid. He scored 45 goals in 91 games for Hütteldorfer.
