DC United now helping out star man De Rosario - Olsen

DC United head coach Ben Olsen is happy to see his team giving some help to Dwayne De Rosario.

The Canadian midfielder basically carried the Washington club last year but Olsen indicated that it is nice to see his team sharing the scoring workload following their 4-1 win over New York Red Bulls on the weekend.

"Dwayne's doing enough," Olsen said. "We all jumped on Dwayne's back last year and said, 'Look. Take us. Take us to the playoffs.'

"And he tried, and he did a pretty unbelievable job at it. We said in the offseason, we can't rely on one guy.

"We need to get help around him so we don't have to rely on Dwayne. Dwayne being in the midfield, he's doing a lot for us, and we're going to continue to score goals with him in the midfield. Dwayne doesn't care. Of course, you always want goals and assists; we all have egos. But ultimately, you'll see a smile on his face in there. He doesn't care, he wants to win."
