I had a suspicion that Schelotto was set to return to the Crew forthe upcoming season. Sigi, via Allen Hopkins, has now confirmed it.
“I talked to Guillermo a couple of days ago and he will get his P-1 visa stamped in Argentina on Jan. 21st or 22nd and his itinerary for his return to Columbus is all set,”
The whole issue seemed like Schelotto was placating his fans in Argentina with the talk of leaving and the Crew holding him back. Sigi confirms this as well.
“As for all the rumors, it was much easier for us to play ‘bad cop’ for Guillermo because of all the pressure on him to help his hometown club”
Saving the best news for last, Schelotto is setting down some roots in town as his family is moving up here for at least this season. He is eager to train with the team, including a stint with Aston Villa in March.
