DC United squad falling apart

The most decorated football club in the United States is literally falling apart on the road.

The most decorated football club in the United States is literally falling apart on the road.

In the middle of a period where DC United is playing 14 games in 44 days, the team prepares for its battle with the last place Los Angeles Galaxy Saturday night in California before travelling to Honduras to play on Tuesday against Marathon in the CONCACAF Champions League.

Argentina playmaker Marcello Gallardo has returned to Buenos Aires to see a specialist for his nagging injuries, while Gonzalo Peralta and Ben Olsen are nowhere near returning from injury.

The Red and Black have already won this season's US Open Cup, the twelfth trophy the club has won in thirteen seasons, but further glory looks less and less likely this season as time goes on. The club is barely clinging to a playoff position on the MLS table with six matches remaining and lost its opening match of the CONCACAF Champions League at home to Costa Rican side Saprissa.
