DaMarcus Beasley is staying in the MLS in 2019, and will play his 20th professional season with the Houston Dynamo. Beasley, who joined Dynamo in 2014, inked a one-year deal.

“The Dynamo have to face a very challenging schedule and DaMarcus has been an outstanding pillar for our team, helping us create a mentality of competing to win at all times,” – said Houston’s coach Wilmer Cabrera in a team statement.

DaMarcus Beasley was more than solid for the Houston Dynamo in the 2018 season, playing 26 games as a starter. The 36-year-old also provided a goal and two assists for Dynamo in a disappointing campaign in which the team missed out on the playoffs with 10-8-16 record.

After starting his professional career with the LA Galaxy, Beasley played for Chicago Fire before heading to Europe and signing with PSV in 2004. He had stints with several other European clubs, including Manchester City, before heading to Mexico and joining Puebla.

Beasley decided to return to Major League Soccer in 2014, signing with Dynamo. He ended up playing a total of 119 games for Houston, scoring three goals.

DaMarcus Beasley was also a valuable member of United States men’s national team, for which he played 126 games and scored 17 goals.
