Chhetri Announcement Set to be Made

The reports from earlier this week are true, the Wizards are signing Indian forward, Sunil Chhetri, pending him getting a P-1 Visa and getting his international transfer certificate from the Indian federation. The Wizards will be hosting a press conference tonight at Cerner's world headquarters while Indian media will be at Cerner's India facility for a tele-conference.

Chhetri will be competing with Teal Bunbury, Zoltan Hercegfalvi, Kei Kamara, Josh Wolff, and even Davy Arnaud for playing time up top for KC. The signing of Chhetri will also force the Wizards to make another roster move as the team is currently at the 24 roster max. The player that is likely on their way out is an international player as I believe the Wizards are currently using all those slots. To me that last slot probably comes down to either Santiago Hirsig or Zoltan Hercegfalvi, the only internationals left over from last year. My thought remains Hirsig as the Wizards are already 5 deep in center midfield not even counting other players like Arnaud and Graham Zusi that can play there. Either way it will be interesting to see who does go to make room on the roster for Chhetri.

Not that I have anything against Hirsig, but I hope they keep Zoltan!
