MLS news: Chicago Fire defense torn to pieces without Friedrich

MLS news: Chicago Fire defense torn to pieces without Friedrich

Chicago Fire defense has been at sixes and sevens without injured Arne Friedrich as they suffered a heavy 4-0 defeat to LA Galaxy.

Veteran defender Arne Friedrich has suffered as serious ankle injury and has missed the Wednesday’s training session. However there has not been any information as whether he will be available for the next Chicago game. Should he be forced to sit on the sidelines the team once again will experience serious problems at the back.

Steven Kinney filled Friedrich’s spot to team up with Austin Berry at the back, but they were unable to keep ageing yet still pacey Robbie Keane at bay. Austin Berry said after the game: “I just think me and Arne got used to each other a lot last year, so there wasn’t a lot of need for communication and shaping. We had a lot of fluid movement with each other. Steve’s a good player, and it’s exciting to see him back from injury. It’s going to take a little bit of time to get used to his movements and for us to jell.”

Meanwhile Friedrich remains a major doubt for a game against New England on Saturday. For more information about latest MSL results, news etc. visit 90soccer
