Schmid: No better forward duo than "ObaDuce"

Sigi Schmid was asked today if he's ever had a better forward pair than his current one: Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey:

"For me as a coach, I’ve never had a better forward duo than those two," he said. (Columbus' Alejandro) Moreno and (Guillermo) Schelotto were pretty good, but they were not as prolific when you look at their goal-scoring rate. When you look at their total assist rate, I think between the two of them they had like 30-plus assists the year we won the championship, so they were more suppliers than finishers themselves. But in terms of just guys who are lethal and can finish, it’s probably the best pair of forwards I’ve ever had a chance to work with."
