Cavalry FC, Matias Roskopf terminate contract due COVID-19 ‘challenges and constraints’

Argentinian forward Matias Roskopf will not be joining Cavalry FC for the 2021 CPL season.

The club announced Thursday that “due to the challenges and constraints brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic” team officials and Roskopf mutually agreed to terminate his contract.

This leaves Roskopf, a native of the Argentinian town of Paraná, the chance to ply his trade locally and avoid potential travel restrictions.

Roskopf, a 22-year-old native of Paraná, came up through the youth system at Club Atlético Colón before joining Buenos Aires-based Boca Juniors, one of the biggest teams in South America, in 2012.

While on the books at Boca, Roskopf went on loan with Uruguayan side Torque where he made his professional debut in 2018. During his one season with Torque, Roskopf scored three goals in 25 appearances.

In 2019, Roskopf signed Rapid București in Romania’s second division where he had four goals and two assists in 17 appearances. He then moved to Cypriot club Apollon Limassol in early 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic limited him to a single appearance then.

Thursday’s announcement leaves Cavalry with 17 players confirmed for the 2021 CPL season.
