Along with Gerba, the Impact have said the following players will not be retained: defenders Philippe Billy and Cameron Knowles, midfielders David Testo, Luke Kreamalmeyer and forwards Pierre-Rudolph Mayard and Marco Terminesi.
“Those decisions are not easy to take, but we must look forward,” Impact Sporting Director Nick De Santis told the team's official website. “The league that we are joining in five months is completely different and the challenges that we face are heavy. These players are fierce competitors who fought for the well-being of the team, but they are not figuring into our future plans.”
Head coach Jesse Marsch and De Santis will be traveling to South America this week to participate in a 10-day scouting trip.
