Kljestan hasn’t signed a new MLS contract.
He hasn’t joined Glasgow Celtic.
Yet Chivas USA was moved to confirm this evening that the club have “officially announced that midfielder Sacha Kljestan, U.S. Soccer’s 2008 Young Male Athlete of the Year and Chivas USA’s reigning team MVP, will return to the Red-and-White for the 2009 MLS season, which kicks off on March 21.”
O.K. That’s good. Figured as much.
The press release was apparently prompted by inquiries from (apparently worried) fans wondering about his status.
I shouldn’t poke fun: more info about players is always more welcome than less (are you listening Bruce Arena and the Galaxy?).
And at least he’s cut that ratty hair of his (and yes, I sound like my grandfather).
More from the Huntington Beach kid here:
Oh, and if he keeps playing out of his skull like he is, a European club or two will come calling when the transfer window opens this summer anyway and he’ll pull a Brad Guzan.
