Tab Ramos Soccer
Ramos played with the New Jersey Eagles of the American Soccer League in 1988. That same year the Tacoma Stars of the MISL selected him with the #1 pick in the draft. He didn’t play a game as he decided to only play the outdoor game. He then moved to the Miami Sharks for the 1989 season. He was selected as a league All-Star that year.
Ramos and several other national team players signed contracts with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF) to play exclusively for the national team as it prepared for the 1990 FIFA World Cup. Following the World Cup, USSF began seeking club opportunities for the national team players. On July 27, 1990, USSF agreed to loan Ramos to Spanish Second Division club Figueres for the 1990–1991 season. He played with Tito Vilanova who would later become FC Barcelona’s manager. In his first season with the team, he played 38 games, scoring 5 goals. On June 23, 1991, Figueres purchased Ramos’ contract from USSF for $250,000. His excellent play continued during his second year with the Figueres, bringing considerable attention from several Primera División clubs. However, Ramos sabotaged this interest when he was ejected from a Nov 24, 1991 game with Rayo Vallecano.
On January 3, 1995, Ramos became the first player signed with Major League Soccer (MLS). The league had intended to begin to play in the fall of 1995 but difficulties forced it to delay its start for a year. Rather than letting players such as Ramos sit idle, the league loaned him and several others to foreign teams. For Ramos, MLS sent him to Liga MX México Primera División Tigres for the second half of the 1994–1995 season. Ramos became the first American player to appear for the side, seeing time in twelve games.
While Ramos was in Mexico, MLS allocated him to the future New York/New Jersey franchise, eventually known as the MetroStars. Following the end of the Mexican season in April 1996, Ramos returned to the United States for the inaugural MLS season in 1996. He would play seven seasons for the MetroStars, earning All-Star recognition in 1996, 1998 and 1999. On May 14, 2002, he announced his intentions of retiring at the end of the 2002 season. When he retired, he was the last original member of the team. Unfortunately, his flashes of brilliance were interrupted by long injury spells, as he never lived up to his potential in a MetroStars jersey. Ramos totaled just eight goals and 36 assists in MLS play (ten goals and 39 assists in all competitions).
Tab Ramos Son
Alex Ramos, Tab’s son has signed a professional contract with Pachuca, with the club confirming the deal to MLSsoccer.com on Monday. And like the vast majority of other Yanks at Liga MX sides, the 19-year-old will be registered as a Mexican citizen and not occupy a foreigner spot.
That may come as a surprise, given his father’s nationality (born in Uruguay, raised in the US), but Pachuca’s sporting director Marco Garces confirmed the information in a phone interview.
“He was born in Monterrey when Tab was playing for Tigres [in his stint between 1995 and 1996],” stated Garcés, who is in overall charge of the Liga MX team’s youth setup. US Soccer also confirmed Ramos was born in the northern Mexican City in an email to MLSsoccer.com on Monday. The younger Ramos featured for New Jersey Soccer Academy 04 and went on to play college ball for Iona in New York, where the Liga MX club scouted him.
Tab Ramos Usmnt
Tab Ramos has seen plenty of change during his almost eight years as United States Under-20 national team coach. When he first led the team that qualified for the 2013 Under-20 World Cup, his biggest issue was finding players who were earning first-team professional minutes. As he prepares for his fourth Under-20 World Cup, Ramos finds himself with an abundance of players who are playing regularly, which will make for some very tough decisions when it comes time to pick his Under-20 World Cup squad.
The current crop of U.S. Under-20 players is widely-regarded as the most talented to ever pass through the U.S. soccer pipeline, including a handful of players who have already made their full USMNT debuts.
