"I am very excited to work with a player like Darwin. He is the player I wanted from the beginning since I took this job – so I look forward to having him here in Houston. I am very happy that ownership supported the idea of trading for Darwin. We were in a position where Darwin had offers from teams in Mexico and throughout MLS – so we had to make a big effort to bring him here. Fans should be proud of that. He is a very exciting player on the final third and we will put him in the best position to impact our team."
- Tab Ramos
“Darwin’s track record speaks for itself. He’s a proven difference-maker in MLS and Liga MX who has adapted very well to our league. We are confident that Darwin’s ability to play a variety of attacking positions and create chances for himself and his teammates in the final third make him an ideal fit for the Houston Dynamo as we prepare for the 2020 season.”
- Matt Jordan
“He is very hard to defend because he is always moving. He is so quick on the turn that if you get too tight, he will just spin you. Very skillful, technical, likes to combine with teammates. Has a nose for the goal. He is a game-changer 100%.”
- DaMarcus Beasley
"For the city of Houston, for the Dynamo, to get a player like that who really at any given moment can win you a game is huge. He's a guy that can score, that can set up, that can create, but also can bring a crowd to its feet. A player that is special, that's what the Dynamo are getting in Darwin Quintero."
- Stuart Holden
"He's unpredictable, can do the unknown, runs at people, breaks defenses down. He obviously brings a bit of a wow factor as well. If you knew he was playing, you'd definitely want to watch the game."
