The Montreal Impact today announced that Panamanian international Omar Browne is to return to his parent club, C. A. Independiente de La Chorrera via the mutual right to recall the player.

Browne arrived on loan on in April this year after impressing against Toronto FC in the CONCACAF Champions’ League.

He played 10 MLS games for the Impact, making 5 starts and scoring twice, in victories over Chicago Fire and Real Salt Lake, at Stade Saputo. Browne also contributed 2 assists.

He also played from the start in the Canadian Championship first-leg game against York9, scoring his only road goal for the club.

Despite undoubted natural ability, there were concerns around Browne’s tactical indiscipline and rigour to engage in defensive or covering responsibilities. On one well-documented occasion coach Remi Garde was seen lambasting his winger from the touchline, for not tracking back in the recent 1-2 defeat to Columbus Crew.

Independiente won the 2019 Clausaura Championship defeating San Francisco on penalties in the final, and lead the Apertura, two points clear after two wins and a draw its first three games.
