Columbus Crew pinning hopes on new recruit Herrera

Columbus Crew are hoping their new recruit Sergio Herrera holds the answer to their goalscoring questions.

The Colombia international signed with Crew last week after three years with Deportivo Cali and the club is hoping the 28-year old can be the man to go to when goals are required.

Crew technical director Brian Bliss believes Herrera has the attributes it takes to do well in MLS.

"He's doesn't have the speed of Jeff Cunningham when Jeff was 28 or 29, but he's not Conor Casey, either," Bliss told the Columbus Dispatch.

"He's got an ability to get separation in the box, some good soccer sense and positioning, and he is clean when he strikes a ball."
