US Soccer continues their MNT in England video series, this time catching up with former Wolverhampton Wanderers’ keeper Marcus Hahnemann and his collection of chickens, living in a former nail factory.
Hahnemann was released by the club after they barely managed Premier League survival this past year. Rumor has it he could be headed home to Seattle to play for the Sounders. But here is what Sounders general manager Adrian Hanauer recently had to say on the matter:
“Marcus Hahnemann is a great goalkeeper, he is from the Seattle area and we’ve discussed the possibilities. That said, there is a very specific process through which U.S. National Team players may enter Major League Soccer, so we cannot make any comments on specific contract negotiations or the likelihood of Marcus ending up in Seattle.”
Oh MLS and it’s silly player rules. If they didn’t have them, everything would be just like the Premiership, right?
Anyway, until Marcus makes the move I’m sure he’ll enjoy biking around and chilling with his cow and chicken buds in the midlands.
