Well, if you haven't heard Gaston Sauro will be out for all of 2017 with multiple surgeries to repair various knee injuries. Link here.
Rough for him and for us; because a guy that I and several Crew fans deeply like.
“It’s going to be a number of surgeries he’s going to get and he’s going to be out for the year,” Berhalter told the Dispatch on Monday. “That’s our reality. It’s a tough reality, but that’s the way it is.”
Before Columbus sold Michael Parkhurst to Atlanta United did they know anything about this? And if they didn't, how?
I'm sure they did. So the Crew have to have a plan, another avenue there already deep in exploration with, for the 2017 season, at center back.
That wasn't a joke. Hopefully
Without Gaston Sauro, the Columbus Crew currently is looking to rely on Nicolai Naess and rookie Alex Crognale.
Could they perhaps re-sign Tyson Wahl out of retirement? :-)
Anyways... With one starter out, did the Crew jump the gun a bit on letting Michael Parkhurst get Housewives of Atlanta on us?
Probably. So what is in his head?
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you're looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money but what I do have are a very particular set of skills.
Gregg, remember: The fieldmouse is fast, but the owl sees at night.
“He has a guaranteed contract we are obligated to fulfill,” Berhalter said. “That’s life. ... We have to work on how we can structure or restructure his contract.”
Sauro made $601,312.50 in guaranteed compensation in 2016. So with that Kei Kamara money, probably $600,000 and Sauro=$600,000. Were all set.
