SKC was never in for MacMath

Cross SKC off the list.

Rumors of Zac MacMath's departure filled twitter last Monday, as he was reported to be going the other way in the CJ Sapong trade. Soon after surfaced conflicting reports saying that Sporting Kansas City would receive a first-round SuperDraft pick in exchange for Sapong. The second report would later be confirmed, and earlier today, SKC CEO ROFLMAO Robb Heineman insisted that his club was never in for MacMath.

The young goalkeeper's situation has been in flux since last summer, when the Union signed Rais M'Bolhi. It's been presumed that both sides are looking to part ways, with MacMath's exposure in last week's Expansion Draft doing nothing to disprove that. Kansas City recently left unprotected both Eric Kronberg and Andy Gruenebaum, leaving 21-year-old Jon Kempin, who has only appeared in four MLS games, as SKC's only rostered goalkeeper. Taking all of this into account, one could assume that a MacMath move to Kansas City was possible, if only because of the gaping hole in between the posts. Cross SKC off the list though - Heineman later said that SKC already has two goalkeepers on the way in.
