Wolff Returning to KC?

An interesting rumor making the rounds thanks to the American Soccer Reader. The article stats that the Wizards are interested in bringing back in the former striker. Wolff left the Wizards for 1860 Munich after the 2006 season. Since then he's struggled a bit at Munich scoring only twice in 34 appearances for the club.

The Wizards are struggling for offense, but I don't see Wolff as being the answer. His style of play is too similar to that of Claudio Lopez and just doesn't look like it would work for the Wizards. Wolff seemed disinterested in KC, and from what I understand was never overly happy to be here. We'll have to wait and see what, if anything comes of this rumor.

UPDATE: And here is an article from MLSnet with quotes from Coach Onalfo and Peter Vermes about the potential signing of Wolff. This rumor looks to be picking up steam.

UPDATE 2: The KC Star has picked up on the rumor as well, and has quotes directly from Josh Wolff on the situation. Wolff says that he has held talks with the league and the team about him coming back to KC, and MLS director of communications Will Kuhns, says the Wizards still own his rights which would make it easier for him to come back to KC. Still not sure about this move though.

Wolf isn't the answer we're looking for. We need midfielders and a genuine target forward.
