Hackworth's Last Stand

There has got to be a hidden reason Hackworth refuses to play Kleberson. He certainly must be recovered from his quad strain or whatever mysterious malady the Union office claimed he had earlier this season. Is there some financial clause tied to playing time in the agreement that they signed with his Brazilian team that releases the Union from some future financial obligation. Maybe Adus contract and Klebersons contract must be linked. Maybe Hackworth hands are tied by ownership? If every fan and commentator is asking the same question about Klebersons lack of playing time this one possible explanation. A player who played for Manchester United and his national team not too long ago certainly has more skill than Keon Daniel at Center Mid. No reporter has put Hackworth on the spot about this but they should. Its time to grill Hackworth for his timid moves at Midfield and solve the Kleberson mystery. On the other hand if this just a Hackworth coaching decision Hackworth must be fired. He has failed to put the best attacking midfielders on the field. The other teams have adjusted to Le Toux and marked him as the only one they need to worry about as an assisting playmaking midfielder. Keon is indecisive has no imagination and is no threat to attack. Danny Cruz has just 1 speed and zero touch on the ball. Williams’s long throws are no surprise to anyone. Teams are regularly just marking and crushing Jack. Every team knows what the Union are going to do with the current lineup. Just mark the forwards because there is no threat that the midfield will ever score.
