Van den Bergh settling quickly at FC Dallas

Dutch midfielder Dave van den Bergh is fitting in very well with Dallas FC according to Head Coach Schellas Hyndman. Hyndman told mlsnet.com: "Last week when I heard Pablo and Dario having a go at Dave, teasing with him in Spanish and he was laughing, I was wondering if he really understood what they were saying or if he was just laughing along with him.

"I asked him if he really understood those guys and he said yes. He said he learned Spanish when he played two years in Madrid."

Hyndman continued: "He's a very outgoing person, so when he was in Madrid, he loved the experience of being there and spoke the language, I already know that Dario and Pablo would rather speak to him in Spanish than English because they feel more comfortable in Spanish.

"I think for Dave, it's another thing he brings to us. We knew we were getting a talented player but we also knew we were getting a person of good character. All these extra things coming along are icing on the cake."
