Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's for 1/23...



Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's: Are the top Crew contemplations of the day. If you're new to the Crew... Video example of what is a Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk .

Today's Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk's:
3. Crew SC headed to Sau Paulo, Brazil. First MLS team to train in Brazil during preseason or in general.
2. Two former Crew SC players now play for same club in Europe.
1. Mohammed Abu is now the Crew's 4th Ghanaian

Quoteable:
3. Crew SC headed to Sau Paulo, Brazil. First MLS team to train in Brazil during preseason or in general..




2. Two former Crew SC players now play for same club in Europe.

As former Crew attacking midfielder Romain Gall was signed by GIF Sundsvall of Swedish Allsvenskan their premier league last night after a successful trial. He now joins former Crew player Kristinn Steindórsson at Sundsvall.


If you want a little more information about Gall's path. Wrote more about it here earlier today.

1. Mohammed Abu is now the fourth member of Crew SC Ghana SC, third new Ghanaian player acquired by the Crew this season

This was according to DrammensTidende writer Ola Niemannif who covers Abu’s current club Strømsgodset IF. Ola nice name stated the deal would be for two years with an option for a third.

Berhalter played coy link here, but the writer Ola is a pretty solid, reputable source close to Strømsgodset happenings.

“What I’ll say is we’ll probably have a player signing announcement this week and you’ll have to stay tuned,” said Gregg Berhalter.

A Strømsgodset fan reached out and said "absolute beast defensive midfielder when in form. Maybe you guys could restore his confidence and form."



Apparently Abu had a really strong 2014, part of 2015, and has tailed off with the rest of the Strømsgodset team lately. Full report by Strømsgodset fan on Abu here. Either way at least, unlike Mensah and Raitala, he has played a lot lately.

Abu has 82 appearances in the last three seasons with Strømsgodset, that beats Mensah's for the last 7 years in 77. Yikers 😳

Abu was also Crew SC's Ola Kamara's teammate from 2010 to 2012 at Strømsgodset.


I do like, appreciate this whole new scouting endeavor by Gregg Berhalter. Haven't noticed? Per chance luck? Eh.

Berhalter has had players he has reason to trust rep other possible players they've played with. Because there is no question he didn't ask Kamara about Abu and Afful about Mensah.

The move has Nordecke land going crazy with the Ghana and Gahanna stuff and etc. as it may not be unforeseeable for the Columbus Crew to have four Ghanaian international players playing in AFCON in 2018, 2019 if all goes well.

Ghanasoccernet.com has picked up the story as well to feel comfortable confirming it.
I find this sentence humorous in addition from Ghanasoccernet.com,

He will become the fourth Ghanaian at Columbus Crew as Harrison Afful, Joanthan Mensah, and Lalas Abubakar are all signed to the club with many Ghanaian supporters.
