It has been a blast, but my time on the field has come to an end. It has been an honor to play this game and a privilege to do so for three fantastic MLS organizations. I am forever indebted to my family, friends, coaches, staff, and teammates for the support they have given me over the course of this journey. The Houston Dynamo, Philadelphia Union, and Montreal Impact and their fans have made my experience truly special and I am eternally grateful! Thank you all!
“We’d like to thank Andrew for his hard work, dedication and commitment, both on and off the field, since joining the Houston Dynamo,” said Dynamo Senior Vice President and General Manager Matt Jordan in the team release. “He has always been a top-class professional and we wish him nothing but the best in the next stage of his career.”
He landed in Houston after a trade with the Philadelphia Union in December 2015. Since coming to Houston he started in 56 games and played in 76. Wenger started the season at forward before moving back to right back.
