Some of you might know Colorado Rapids all-star midfielder Jeff Larentowicz best from the scorching goal he scored against the Union earlier this month, but the West Chester native is regarded as one of the best midfielders in Major League Soccer.
Larentowicz, who played at Philadelphia’s Chestnut Hill Academy and still coaches at FC Delco in the off-season, sat in Wednesday night as the featured interview on KYW’s Philly Soccer Show. He articulated some insightful views about Major League Soccer’s structure, the Philly soccer scene, and his remarkable rise from unknown bench-warmer to all-star and national team prospect. Considering his unique standpoint — Larentowicz was practically the poster child for MLS’s refusal to allow free agency this winter — and his Ivy League education, it’s definitely an interview worth hearing, as he doesn’t mince words.
Hosts Greg Orlandini and Dan Walsh also talk about Philadelphia Union, the Bob Bradley watch and other bits and pieces from the soccer world.
