9/5/2012: Guillermo Played Role In Higuain

According to, Guillermo Barros Schelotto played a definitive role in the signing of Federico Higuain.

First off, Crew Technical Director Brian Bliss came to Schelotto and asked him basically what player, players can play like you in Argentina, then on the flip side Guillermo recommended the city of Columbus and playing for the Crew to Higuain.

"They were looking for a playmaker, the position in which I had played, and I thought they were well guided because Higuain was not a classic striker and could pull hitch, and well, the first three games has three goals and two assists.

So far, Guillermo's managerial career with Lanus in Argentina has had a tough start with a 1-1-3 start in 5 games, and the club sitting 15th out of 20 teams.

But, surely, Schelotto has some tricks in his bag for Lanus, just like he did for Columbus on and now off the field with the Higuain recommendation.
