DC United coach Ben Olsen has welcomed the arrival of Alain Rochat.
United acquired Rochat in a trade with Vancouver on Thursday.
‚ÄúHe‚Äôll be in next week,‚ÄĚ Olsen said. ‚ÄúHe helps us both on the defensive end and on the offensive end. He‚Äôs a good passer, he‚Äôs experienced, versatile. Played holding mid, left back and central defender ‚Äď spots that we could use some help at.
‚ÄúI think it‚Äôs a good pickup. We‚Äôre excited to have him and hopefully he feels the same.‚ÄĚ
