Colorado Rapids defensive midfielder Michael Azira will join Colorado Springs Switchbacks F.C. on loan.
Switchbacks head coach Steve Trittschuh revealed that the Ugandan native will be available for the club’s weekend match against Oklahoma City in an interview with XTRA Sports 1300’s Ryan Kaufman.
The midfielder made five league appearances for the Rapids in the 2018 MLS season, tallying a mere 275 minutes of playing time. Azira had not seen the field in a competitive game for the Rapids since Colorado’s July 4 match against Seattle.
Update: The loan has now been made official. Colorado will reserve the right to recall Azira at any point during the remainder of the season.
