2.11.2015: Robert Kristo's Trial In Italy Successful

Crazy I can now call this place home #laspezia #cinqueterre #italy

The 6'4 Robert Kristo won't be heading in goals for the Columbus Crew this season, instead his devastating aerial ability (as mentioned by his new coach) will be on display at 7th place Serie B side Spezia Calcio.

In a way though, Columbus Crew can look at it (and Berhalter mentioned in a way he is) as an extended loan; as in most cases, eventually every American player ends up back in Major League Soccer.

Kristo won't be looking at it that way though.

And if there was one player not to bet against, it looks like this guy.

Kristo was confident that he was going to Italy, that his trial would be successful, and he would be signed. That's an excellent sign of his mental character. Very determined kid.

You hope for great success in Europe for a young American player such as Kristo. But, if he finds himself with the wrong coach or team in the future, Columbus may be an attractive option.
