That's true, but I also think the only reason he's still around at all is because Jurgen is German.
Stars have all the power. Look at what Kobe is doing in LA. It isn't because Chandler is German. It's because Chandler could be one of the top 10 players in his position, which is not exactly stocked with talent in the US or around the world, for the next decade.
And excluding Cherundolo, our only options for the outside backs are Lichaj, Fabien Johnson, and Spector.
I have no problem with him being added, and I hope he caps in a CONCACAF game very soon.
