United News and Notes
Roll call, please.....
Ben Olsen? Out with a yellow card suspension.
Justin Moose? Out following sports hernia surgery.
Bryan Namoff? Jogging on the side, will not travel.
Jaime Moreno? Jogging on the side, will not travel.
Guy-Roland Kpene? Jogging on the side, will not travel. (new injury)
Will any of those last three guys be available Wednesday for the SuperLiga opener vs. Morelia?
"Let me check my crystal ball," Coach Tom Soehn said, laughing.
Juan Sebastian Veron? One source tells me there is some interest from DCU in the Argentine star midfielder. However, the source said, it would likely take "Angel money" to get a deal done. Juan Pablo Angel's base salary with New York is $1.5 million. Is United's new investment team prepared to pay out more than a million of its own money (on top of what MLS would pay -- 400K)?
"I don't comment on heresay," Soehn said. "There is nothing to comment on. You guys have too much time on your hands."
Vagner, the young Brazilian defender, did not show much and will not be offered a contract/roster spot. Another Brazilian is here, a player who knows Emilio and plays in Honduras, but the primary purpose is for personal training. He'll stick around for another week, but Soehn said it's not really a trial.
Off topic, longtime MLS player Ronald Cerritos, who spent some time with United, is about to finalize a contract to play for the new USL2 club in the area, Real Maryland FC. That's according to Silvino Gonzalo, who will manage the club starting next year at a home site to be determined.
