I’m in shock. The last player I’d think would be in European top flight football
Yeah, surprising considering what he did or did not do in his MLS career..... but remember, sometimes bottom-rung teams that are fighting to stay up after promotion will take a flyer on a player who just happens to work out - Lalas played for Padova in Italy, and while Lalas was a good /great aerial CB, he was atrocious in just about every other way, and yet an Italian team wanted him (probably for the marketing value).

Good for Khiry for taking his opportunity and making something of it. And once again, a former maligned NYCFC player shines after their exit.

Demonstrates how MLS isn't that far off from the bottom tier of these top leagues, not counting the EPL, IMO.
What would be the aggregate on the current NYCFC v. Paderborn with healthy rosters?

So crazy to think about how pissed we were we ended up with him instead of Cyle Larin, and that was the right take based on MLS production. But look at them both now.
