Schelotto Is Back!

January 19, 2010

The Crew officially announced that Gullermo Barros Schelotto will return to the Crew this season. He won’t be a Designated Player and “Per club and league policy, no further terms of the deal were disclosed.” Mitchell did say that there is an option for 2011 as well.

I am certainly excited that the Argentine maestro will be back in a Crew uniform this year. He is the smartest player I have seen in person. He can wriggle out of the tightest jam and still split the defense with a killer pass. It’s something that doesn’t quite come across on television. It doesn’t quite capture the Gulle magic.

Columbus now has most of the pieces for another strong title run. I hope the Crew are still looking for a top class striker and more importantly a difference maker in central midfield. Without either of those, the team is relying on the wingers to start the offense and that did not work out well towards the end of last season.
