Coach Sigi Schmid was asked about that, and a bit more:
"It’s good," he said. "This is where he was sort of born and bred and it’s good to see him back."
On the chance of a Yedlin loan back for playing time: "It’s really a club decision. He was there for that half a season. Now he’s there from the beginning of the season. I’m sure how they look at it is the opportunity he’s going to get in preseason is different from what you get coming in at the winter break, because there’s more friendlies, there’s more exhibitions, there’s more opportunities to show yourself. I’m sure if things don’t work out then, then they’ll probably address how they can get him playing time."
Update on Osvaldo Alonso's hamstring: Same. It really hasn’t advanced all that much. It’s still probably a day-to-day this for us. It probably looks a little less likely for tomorrow. But we always have our fingers crossed.
