Feilhaber Update: TSG was out of pocket yesterday, but according to agent to the stars Lyle Yorks’ twitter, US national Benny Feilhaber is headed to MLS.
No word on which team yet, but Chivas has first allocation pick and Feilhaber is from near Irvine, CA. A second tweet by Yorks’ seemed to allude to it.
Interesting move for Feilhaber who is out of contract at the end of the campaign.
He certainly didn’t help his self-promotion by moving with Aarhus to the second division in Denmark upon their demotion. After a rumored move to Mexico’s Primera never materialized, little doubt–much like Jay DeMerit–that finding a deal out of contract to a better league would materialize it seems.
As for the Chivas match for Feilhaber? The Goats are lacking in the attack but Robin Fraser is a steadfast defensive organizer and Feilhaber is not quite Makelele. More to come for sure.
