7/28/2012: Federico! Columbus Signs Higuain

7/28/2012: Federico! Columbus Signs Higuain
By Ryan Kozlowski

We got him! The designated player.

Kudos to the Columbus Crew for keeping the deal under wraps until the final moment.

But, Federico Higuain is ours!

And there can be no better signing. Yes, he's only scored 10 goals out of 62 appearances for his last Argentina Primera Division club, but Higuain is only 27!

Plus, he has a good pedigree being the son of Jorge Higuain and having Real Madrid player Gonzalo Higuain as a brother.

Further, were the club of Argentine legends, Guillermo Barros Schelotto for one would definitely approve of our new signing.

Anyway, strikers hit their best form between the age of 28 to 32. Therefore, we can only expect that the best is yet to come from Federico.

Federico also hit 11 goals in 36 appearances for Argentina Primera side Godoy Cruz.

“On behalf of our club, we are extremely excited to bring another world class player to Crew fans and to the Columbus market,” said Crew President and General Manager Mark McCullers. “Federico is a talented, technical and speedy attacking player who will add another dimension to our offense."

Anyway, with him. Arrieta, and Renteria, supported by a good midfield and defense I'm a lot more optimistic that the Columbus Crew can sneak into the playoffs.
