According to Honduran news site Diez.hn, midfielder Amado Guevara has signed a two-year contract with Tegucigalpa side CD Motagua, effectively ending his career at Toronto.

Though the contract supposedly includes an option for the 33-year-old Honduras captain to return to Major League Soccer, Guevara has been quoted as saying he will retire with the Blue Eagles.

This would be Guevara’s 5th stint with his hometown club, from which he joined Toronto FC in 2008 after a loan spell.

No announcement has been made by Toronto FC at the time of this posting.

In 2007, Guevara had a falling out with then-Chivas USA head coach and current TFC boss Preki, whose attempts to deal Guevara to several MLS sides – including Toronto – after just 4 games were all rejected by Guevara himself. He eventually accepted a loan to his hometown club for the remainder of the 2007 season.

Guevara was acquired by TFC on April 9, 2008 and made his debut against Los Angeles Galaxy, in what would be Toronto’s first win of the season. Guevara had the assist on Danny Dichio’s 42nd minute goal to open the scoring.

Guevara is captain and all-time caps leader of the Honduras national football team, having made 130 appearances for his country’s senior squad since 1994. He is set to lead his nation into the World Cup Finals next year in South Africa.
