DC United coach Ben Olsen has welcomed the arrival of Alain Rochat.
United acquired Rochat in a trade with Vancouver on Thursday.
â€śHeâ€™ll be in next week,â€ť Olsen said. â€śHe helps us both on the defensive end and on the offensive end. Heâ€™s a good passer, heâ€™s experienced, versatile. Played holding mid, left back and central defender â€“ spots that we could use some help at.
â€śI think itâ€™s a good pickup. Weâ€™re excited to have him and hopefully he feels the same.â€ť
