Career Summary

Contract mutually terminated on August 6, 2020.

A hulking, yet nimble shot-stopper with poise beyond his years, the 23-year-old had 21 starts in 2018 with six shutouts and should again be the club's No. 1 goalkeeper in 2019.

INTERNATIONAL: Dual-eligible for the US and Mexico, Gonzalez has risen through El Tri's youth system, but initially accepted an offer from Jurgen Klinsmann to join the US national team at their 2016 January camp, only to make an about-face and accept Mexico's call instead. Made two saves in a PK shootout to help Mexico win the Concacaf Under-20 Championship (vs. Panama, 4-2 on PKs after a 1-1 draw) and qualify for the 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup. Gonzalez eventually landed with the US national team after a FIFA-approved one-time switch, and joined the MNT for the 2017 Gold Cup.
