Sal Zizzo: Back to MLS

July 20, 2010 — by Sean

23 yr-old midfielder Sal Zizzo has impressed in US youth sides, but†didnít have a great time at Hannover 86 after getting limited play, then tearing his ACL. Heíll be thrown into the weighted lottery tomorrow, meaning his most†likely†destinations are Kansas City or D.C., though in either case heíll need to get his fitness back up before making any real impact.

Hedged excitement in KC:

“…the Wizards won a similar weighted lottery with teenage prospect Luis Gil. However, Gil wanted to play within a 20 hour drive of the Pacific Ocean, so his rights were traded to Real Salt Lake.†And KC missed out on the next big thing in MLS.”
