Crew, Marshall Makes It Official

December 26, 2008

The Crew and Chad Marshall have agreed to a new contract. This is an outstanding achievement by the Crew and I think a good decision by Marshall. The Crew retain the MLS Defender of the Year so the upside of a new contract is obvious there, but I think this is also a good move on Chad’s part.

Marshall is one of the top young American defenders. He can go to a top league and play decent minutes. He should not be trialing in the second division in Germany (even for a team that is leading the league). I think that European teams either were not aware of his skill set or were scared off by his injury history. He now gets to head to California for the National Team camp in January to raise his profile and at least another year of MLS soccer under his belt to dismiss any injury concerns. The next timed he looks to Europe, he won’t have to trial. Teams will be lining up for his services. This looks to be a win win situation for both the team and player.
