Report: Sunny looks to be leaving RSL

The hard-tackling midfielder may be leaving, if Marcelo Silva’s Instagram is to be believed.

If the Instagram accounts of athletes are to be believed — and trust us, they usually are, though not always for the best reasons — Real Salt Lake midfielder Sunny is on his way out of the club.

That’s because of a post from Marcelo Silva, who posted a photo with Sunny and club kit man Alex Caparelli (and another fellow, whose name doesn’t immediately come to mind).

It’s in Spanish, so here’s the translation from the Google.

Thanks soccer for making me know so good people in this case saying goodbye to one of them you will miss him @sunday_stephen happy to have known you ⚽️ ⚽️

And here’s the photo.

If Sunny is indeed leaving the club, he leaves having played 62 games for the club and having scored one goal, that one coming in his second game for the club.

We’ll talk more about what this means, but Sunny leaving would seem to indicate that substantial changes are coming to RSL’s midfield in 2019. Jose Hernandez, a homegrown player, also looks to have exited the club without having played minutes.
