Philadelphia Union head coach John Hackworth has indicated that the club could be in the market for another South American signing.
Hackworth and the Unionâ€™s new director of international player development, Ricardo Ansaldi, recently undertook a scouting trip to the region and it appeared to be a positive sojourn with the possibility of some offseason recruiting.
â€śI can see a really likely possibility we will have a signing based on that trip and based on our scouting in South America,â€ť Hackworth told MLSsoccer.com.
â€śWe did a lot of driving between soccer fields and got stuck in a lot of South American traffic jams. But we saw an awful lot, which is excellent because we had a long list of targets. Now weâ€™ve got to make some decisions.â€ť
He added: â€śWe just went to South America for a reason. Itâ€™s because there are some really good players there.â€ť
South Americans on the current Philly roster include captain Carlos Valdes and fellow Colombian Roger Torres following the midseason dismissals of Lionard Pajoy and Gabriel Gomez (also Colombian).
