Crew interested in "The Sprinter" Balic


#Crew96 according to Kristian Dyer are one of five MLS teams interested in the 25 year old Austrian Husein Balic. The LASK Linz player is known as one of the fastest players in soccer (LINK). He can play left, right wings, and attacking midfield.

However, I wonder if the Crew's interest was before the Crew officially signed Matan? As Columbus already has Zelarayan, Molino, Santos, Etienne, Diaz, and Matan to keep happy in attacking midfield positions.

I'm assuming a guy that is a starter in Austria and in the Europa League won't find a ton of joy with a game in every three in Major League Soccer.

Interesting enough in the above clip you may recognize someone on the sideline though. Former Columbus Crew player Emanuel Pogatetz is Balic's assistant coach currently at LASK Linz.

Balic has 29 appearances, 9 goals, 3 assists this season. The above are two goals in the Europa League.
