Sporting Kansas City management full of praise for Chad Ochocinco

Sporting Kansas City manager Peter Vermes has heaped praise on trialist Chad Ochocinco, the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver.

Ochocinco left a huge impression at Sporting after his high profile tests.

He wound up being a very good guy and he was very aware of the things that could be a distraction," Vermes told the Montreal Gazette

"He was very respectful of the process we had going in."

Ochocinco, who last played soccer in high school, didn't make Kansas City's first side, but has been made an "honorary member" of the club and can train with the reserve team whenever he wants.

"He is fantastic in the lockerroom and all our guys got along with him very, very well," Vermes said.
