MLS outfit, Kansas City Wizards appear ready to reach into their past to help their attack this season. Former American international, Josh Wolff, who scored 27 goals from 2003-06 with the Wizards before leaving for Germany, has had discussions about returning.
The Wizards have a roster spot open with the departure of Eloy Colombano, who was released last week. Colombano was due to make $70,750 this year, so the Wizards appear to have cap room available as well.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had talks with them and the league,Ã¢â‚¬Â Wolff said today. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in talks. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s about all I can say.Ã¢â‚¬Â
MLS director of communications, Will Kuhns said the Wizards still own WolffÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rights. That means if Wolff signs with the league, the Wizards would have the first chance at having him join their roster.
Wizards coach Curt Onalfo, who was an assistant for the U.S. national team at the 2006 World Cup, said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I coached Josh on the national team,Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“He was a guy that we tried to sign when I first took the job (after the 2006 season). He decided to go overseas. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll just leave it at that.Ã¢â‚¬Â Wolff signed with 1860 Munich, a second-division team in Germany, after the 2006 MLS season. His contract expired this spring after the season ended in Germany.
