RSL Trialist/Lagerwey on Trade Rumors

James Edward has posted comments from Garth Lagerwey on his Deseret News blog addressing the circulating rumors about RSL shopping a defender. Lagerwey seems to downplay these rumors as he states,

"We have evidence that we're capable of playing at a very high level, but we need to go out and prove it. If we can, great, we're not going to go out and make moves we don't have to, but as with any team if you struggle, and you underachieve and you underperform, then you need to go out in the market place and look at your options."

However, at the same time, RSL has brought a trialist in the mix who just happens to be a defender. The trialist is Jamil Fearington, a 23-year-old defender who is a Danish American. He last played with Boldklubben Frem in the Danish first division, and reportedly can play both centrally and at right back.

Unlike the mystery trialist, "Paul", this seems to be an authentic trial situation. In addition, I have a feeling that there is a decent chance for this guy to make his mark and find a way onto the roster. Read more about Fearington by Greg Seltzer on Soccer365.

Interesting turn of events?
