Houston Dynamo Loan FW Mateo Bajamich to Instituto AC in Argentina for Offseason
HOUSTON - The Houston Dynamo have loaned winger Mateo Bajamich to Instituto AC in Argentina, the club announced today. The loan will last until January 20, 2021.
Bajamich signed with Houston on a full transfer from Instituto on Oct. 5 and will rejoin the Dynamo for preseason training camp ahead of the 2021 season. Major League Soccer has not released the 2021 season schedule at this time.
"In preparation for the 2021 season we felt this short term off season loan would benefit Mateo and our club to help him continue playing and gaining rhythm as we prepare for next season." Dynamo Senior Vice President and General Manager Matt Jordan.
The 21-year-old scored 10 goals and tallied six assists in 28 matches with Instituto during his time with the club. He made his debut on February 23, 2019 against Nueva Chicago at the age of 19.
The winger scored his first professional goal on Aug. 23, 2019 against CA Sarmiento and added the game-winning goal two weeks later in a 1-0 victory over Chacarita Juniors. His first professional brace followed on Sept. 14 in a 3-0 victory over Brown Adrogue. Bajamich appeared in seven games in the 2018/2019 season scoring one goal and adding three assists in debut campaign.
Bajamich was born in Morrison, Argentina, located between Cordoba and Rosario. He acquired his Croatian passport earlier this year and is eligible for selection with the Croatian national team program.
