Columbus Crew's unnecessary purchase of Krisztian NemethColumbus Crew, first in the MLS standings, confirmed the transfer of the former Sporting Kansas City player.
Columbus Crew is one of the candidates to win the MLS trophy. He is currently first in the MLS Eastern Conference with Toronto FC but has a better goal difference than the Canadian team. Its president Tim Bezbatchenko announced the arrival of Nemeth saying that the forward came to the Columbus Crew as a striker who scores goals. Statistics show otherwise.
Krisztian Nemeth comes from playing in the Slovakian league where he did not score a goal this season. During his time in MLS at Sporting Kansas he scored only 9 goals in 34 games, that is, one goal every four games. Not only did he play for Sporting Kansas in the MLS, but in the 2017-2018 seasons he played 21 games with New England Revolution where he only scored 1 goal.
If we think that Krisztian Nemeth will arrive in the United States next week and will have to do the mandatory quarantine, the player will arrive for the last date of the regular season. Columbus Crew, while not having great offensive power, has found a performance that is rarely surpassed by a rival.
Columbus Crew coach Gyasi Zardes thinks he can use Nemeth as both a center forward and a wing, but at the moment he doesn't think he can start as his team is playing wonders. If we think about his MLS stats of 20 goals in 80 games we can believe that it was an unnecessary purchase for the Columbus Crew team.
