Timbers sign forward Felipe Mora to contract extension
The Portland Timbers today announced that the club has signed forward Felipe Mora to a contract extension through 2025 with a club option in 2026.
“We have a strong belief in Felipe as both a player and a person. This is a unique situation in which Felipe’s unselfishness to work with the club in restructuring the contract, affords us the ability to continue to fully support him in his rehab process,” said Timbers technical director Ned Grabavoy. “We have confidence that he can return to being an impact level player for us, and take pride in him being a member of this club.”
Mora, 29, is set to enter his fourth season at Portland. The Chilean striker has scored 19 goals and tallied 7 assists in 55 regular season appearances (35 starts) for the Timbers. In the 2022 season, Mora recorded a goal in 78 minutes played after finishing the 2022 regular season with a team-leading 11 goals and five assist (27 points).
“Felipe has been a very important figure to the success of our club during the past few years and we missed his contributions during the 2022 season. Despite the adversities he has had to face, we have never seen him surrender,” said Timbers head coach Giovanni Savarese. “Knowing the hardworking and incredible person he is, I have no doubt he will come back stronger than ever and ready to continue to contribute to the team.”
