Some news this morning that should excite fans around the league, especially those in Columbus. Former league MVP Guillermo Barros Schelotto is said to be working on getting his green card.

From this news it sounds like GBS is serious about staying with Major League Soccer and the Columbus Crew. I’ve also been told that he wants to eventually get into coaching, so this could be a move to keep him in the States long enough to secure a coaching position when he is done with this playing career.

As of this morning there is no new news about his contract with the Crew. But this news about him going after a green card should mean he is serious about re-signing with the Crew. That can only help the Crew going forward into this season, without him they’d have a lot of ground to cover in the draft and in the transfer market to replace his productivity.
