One of the newest members of the Philadelphia Union stops by in the latest edition the KYW Philly Soccer Show.
Defender Ethan White, who comes to the Union from DC United in exchange for fellow defender Jeff Parke, joins KYW’s Greg Orlandini and PSP’s Eli Pearlman-Storch.
White talks about the heated rivalry between the two teams and the fact that he expects to compete for a starting spot on the back line that is long on youth but a bit short on experience.
And he says he is no stranger to many of the Union players, competing with them in US youth program.
Greg and Eli then discuss some of the possible lineups and formations the team could use this year with some of the new players they have brought into the squad.
And, as this week’s pod was being taped, ESPN soccer analyst Taylor Twellman reported via Twitter that Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz was on his way to England to finalize the deal for US international midfielder Maurice Edu. Stay tuned!
