It isn’t always easy to follow up an impressive rookie season in Major League Soccer. We have seen that be the case for several first-year standouts in recent years. DeAndre Yedlin has no intention of taking a step back though, he has only grown hungrier to succeed after a season that started with him being considered a low-profile rookie, and ended with him being called in to the U.S. Men’s National Team.
In my latest Goal.com feature, I take a look at Yedlin’s quest to improve on his rookie campaign, a quest that started off on the right foot with a strong showing in Seattle’s season opening victory against Sporting Kansas City.
Still only 20, Yedlin has grown up quickly after a year spent as a regular starter for a top team. His exciting style of play, combining speed, flash and quality getting forward, has fans in Seattle and throughout the country excited about his potential and has already caught the eye of Jurgen Klinsmann.
Give the feature a read and let us know what you think about Yedlin’s potential. See him as a future national team starter? Think he can improve on his rookie season? Do you love the crazy haircuts, or think he should keep things simple?
