“This is home for me now, I absolutely love it here.” – Nick Rimando discusses his career and retirement

Nick Rimando holds the Major League Soccer records for games played (512), saves (1,698), wins (221), and shutouts (154).  He’s played 20 seasons in the league, 13 with Real Salt Lake, and won 2 MLS Cups (2004 D.C. United and 2009 Real Salt Lake).  He’s the Wall of the Wasatch and Sunday’s match against Houston Dynamo could potentially be his last at Rio Tinto Stadium.  On Friday, Rimando joined the media to discuss his career:

Following the press conference, Sandy’s Mayor Kurt Bradburn announced that Stadium Way, which runs around the north and west sides of Rio Tinto Stadium attaching at State Street and 9400 South, has been renamed Rimando Way and proclaimed that September 27 is now “Nick Rimando Day” in Sandy.

Our coverage of Real Salt Lake vs Houston Dynamo begins on Sunday, September 29 at 4:30 PM.
